TITLE
New Business models in the era of Circular Economics by Prof. Panikkos Poutziouris, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Business, Rector at UCLan Cyprus

ORGANISERS
School of Business and Management at UCLan Cyprus, MBA Programme at UCLan Cyprus, CEDAR

SUMMARY
The new competitive order has been changing as established and new firms are now developing business models based on the principles of circular economics.
This seminar will expound how new circular economics is reshaping strategic thinking and business operations (adopting Reduce-Reuse-Recycle-Rethink). It will illustrate how entrepreneurs, strategists and policy makers are promoting new business models e.g. B2B, B2C, C2C C2B , which are based on the treble bottom line: Planet, People, Profits. In the post industrial revolution, there is a growing emphasis on innovation that can maximise value from inputs across all stages of ‘production’ of goods and services by optimising the use of resources, prolonging the use of materials, extending product life cycles, sharing economic resources, recovering/harvesting, re-manufacturing and regenerating products and materials at the end of each of their service life.
