MODOS Training for a Sustainable Future

MODOS is a circular economy training programme for micro, small and medium size enterprises. It is a joint initiative of Dublin City Council and the Eastern-Midlands Regional Waste Management Planning Office..

We are delighted to announce a new MODOS Spring Programme 2022 for businesses in the Dublin City and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown areas during March and April 2022. The MODOS Spring Programme 2022 is being funded by the Environmental Protection Agency and this will allow us to continue the practice of offering top quality circular economy training at subsidised rates.

Register NOW for one of our free taster sessions for MODOS Spring Programme 2022:

The programme will be delivered virtually. The trainers will make each session interactive with a mix of presentations, best practice case studies, exercises and discussion to help participants apply the learning to their business.

What is the circular economy?

Participants will have a choice of two sets of dates to participate in the programme: 2nd March 2022 to the 30th March 2022 OR 9th March to 6th April.

Our current economic model is based on a linear ‘take-make-waste’ approach, which is costly for businesses and bad for the environment. By contrast, a circular economy is efficient and environmentally sustainable. In a circular economy, products, components and materials are kept in use for as long as possible. Supply and production chains operate in ‘closed-loops’ making them less wasteful and more resilient. New business models based around leasing, re-manufacturing, recycling and upcycling become possible, saving businesses money and reducing environmental impacts.

How does the circular economy benefit businesses?

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

With the European Union introducing new policy and regulation for a low-carbon economy and the Irish government bringing in new Green Procurement standards, Irish businesses need to understand and adapt to the transition from a linear to a circular economy. Doing so will help to future proof their business and enable them to #buildbackbetter post COVID.

Who is this training programme suitable for?

MODOS is suitable for all businesses but is particularly relevant for those from the following sectors: construction and the built environment, food, retail, manufacturing, textiles and fashion, electronics, plastics and packaging.

MODOS is a circular economy training programme for micro, small and medium size enterprises. It is a joint initiative of the Economic Development Office (EDO) of Dublin City Council and the Regional Waste Management Planning Offices.

What is the circular economy?
Our current economic model is based on a linear ‘take-make-waste’ approach, which is costly for businesses and bad for the environment. It is a model that relies on large quantities of cheap, easily accessible materials and energy. By contrast, a circular economy generates no waste; it is efficient and environmentally sustainable. In a circular economy, products, components and materials are kept in use for as long as possible, continually creating value. Supply and production chains operate in ‘closed-loops’ making them less wasteful and more resilient. New business models based around leasing, re-manufacturing, recycling and upcycling become possible – saving businesses money and reducing environmental impacts.
