XLabs - Circular economy lab for Auckland businesses
XLabs was a series of five one-day workshops, delivered by Circularity. Circularity help businesses understand circular economy principles, build in-house capability and design business solutions using its Circular by Design methodology.
Auckland businesses from the tourism, consumer goods, built environment and transport sectors brought 18 teams of three to six people and their business challenges to XLabs.
Participants worked together to create innovative circular solutions for real-life business challenges Auckland companies are facing. They created, prototyped and market test circular economy innovations, which ultimately accelerated circular economy innovation in Auckland.
