Switching to the Circular Economy: MODOS Training for D8 Businesses

Dublin City Council and The Digital Hub are partnering to provide Dublin 8-based SMEs an opportunity to adapt their business to the circular economy



Would you like to grow your business in a more environmentally sustainable way? Would you like to take advantage of the opportunities of a switch to the circular economy?

MODOS is a circular economy training programme for micro, small and medium size enterprises. The circular economy is all about shifting business away from the current ‘take-make-waste’ approach to a more efficient and environmentally sustainable future where products, components and materials are kept in use for as long as possible. Supply and production chains in the circular economy operate in ‘closed-loops’ making them less wasteful and more resilient and saving businesses and customers money. Adopting circular economy principles can help your business:

  • Save money, reduce waste and increase resilience.
  • Boost competitive advantage and brand reputation.
  • Unlock new business opportunities that also help the environment.

Now Dublin City Council and the Waste Management Plan Lead Authority (WMPLA) is partnering with The Digital Hub to offer a MODOS programme tailored for businesses here in Dublin 8.

The MODOS Training for Dublin 8 Businesses offers:

  • Four weekly modules of online learning starting in June
  • Modules focused on regulations and policy, sustainable financing, adapting your supply chain, greening your operations, and customer expectations
  • Learn with the aid of relevant case studies
  • A follow-up one-on-one mentoring session with industry professionals
  • Course cost €75

Interested? An initial 1-hour ‘taster session’ for applicants will be held on Wednesday 5th May giving you the opportunity to learn more about the programme and its benefits. If you would like to take part, then please download, complete and return the application form below.
