Reinventing a Sustainable Future: Circular Economy Innovation @ HP

Addressing the product lifecycle approach to re-using goods, remanufacturing goods and remarketing used goods is not only a crucial key to unlocking the benefits of the circular economy but also adds sustainable value to profit margin.

Manufacturers produce millions of products and goods, often with a complex composition of materials. While manufacturers understand the opportunity of doing more with less, closing the loop on materials and thinking about design, adopting the principles of the circular economy is not that clear cut.

 

  • Where are we with the circular economy and how is HP adopting Circular Economy principles?
  • Addressing the products and materials where the circular economy works well and other areas where it is not so obvious
  • Developing and nurturing circular business models – the ‘servitization’ of products
  • Joint strategic and collaborative partnerships

Evolving Systems Thinking and Re-design to Support the Shift to a More Circular Economy

The time of a linear ‘take, make, dispose’ model is over. To be more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly, huge movements in sustainability are underway throughout industry. This is leading to a more circular economy and Peter Bilello discusses this shift's implications to technology, strategy and the bottom line.

  • Why a circular economy? – reducing resource and energy consumption through a complete operating system re-haul
  • Generating an effective strategy and framework for systems-level re-definition
  • What are the systems implications of abandoning the linear model?
  • Re-designing systems around reuse, recycle and upcycle
  • Designing out waste
  • Rebuilding capital through enhanced product lifecycle models
