The Circular Design training program is approaching the halfway point

Circular Design -valmennusohjelma lähestyy puoliväliä

The Circular Design development path towards a circular economy program built on the initiative of the Ministry of the Environment has already reached the halfway point. In the training program to be implemented during 2023, 50 Finnish companies will be trained to become pioneers of the circular economy. In addition to Image Wear, the pilot program includes e.g. Stora Enso, UPM Raflatac, Mirka, Helkama Velox, Kiilto and Genelec.

The company's development projects are progressing

The companies participating in the pilot program have various circular economy development projects - some are developing strategic level projects, while others are concrete product or service projects. The development projects are in the planning phase, and many projects only start after training that lasts until the end of the year.

The participants of the training program are even more certain that the transition to a circular economy is necessary. The training has been perceived as inspiring and has increased interest in new circular economy ideas and openings.

The Circular Design training program is approaching the halfway point.

Image Wear develops sustainable and recyclable work clothes

Image Wear's goal is to develop in the training program especially the beginning of the life cycle of work clothes. From an environmental point of view, it is important that the products are designed so that they last as long as possible for the purpose for which they were developed.

In addition to the long life of work clothes, recycling is also important. Image Wear's project also develops the design of work clothes so that the clothes can be recycled as efficiently as possible.
