Companies often take on responsibilities that go beyond legal obligations, for example in areas such as the market, the environment, the workplace and community. In addition to the benefits for society, the company can thus also build resilience, reduce costs and increase employee satisfaction. One way for companies to assume responsibility, especially in the area of the environment, is through circular value creation. In this process, products and materials are kept in cycles for as long as possible, thus enabling new, more effective business models. In our online workshop in cooperation with the CSR Competence Centre Ruhr we show how circular value creation can be understood and applied as part of a CSR strategy.
