Design is Key to our Circular Transition

In a major survey among Danish companies, Design Delivers Green, a majority of Danish companies say they are taking steps to become more circular, but lack design competencies such as material understanding, knowledge of users’ and customers’ needs and skills to develop circular business models to move forward.

These are key design competencies. We urge companies to look to designers to solve these challenges, and designers to be aware of their crucial role in the circular transition. Develop your circular skills in our leadership program, or use our toolkit.

Zooming in on:

Designing Our Irresistible Circular Society

What do you think a (more) circular Denmark looks and feels like? How are we citizens, consumers, businesses, and scientists in a circular society?

We lack a shared direction for Denmark to become an irresistible circular society in 2030. The shift to a circular society is an urgently needed change. Otherwise, we will not achieve the government’s goal of reducing our CO2 emissions by 70 percent by 2030. But the existing ambitions are not high enough.

That is why we are launching initiative 30 for 2030 – a step toward realizing our mission to design an irresistible circular society. With 30 partners, we’ve defined ten actions that enable us to act.
