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 two new MODOS courses for March and April 2022 catering for businesses in the Dublin City and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown areas. These courses are 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.

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.

Booking details coming soon, please register your interest here.

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. 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.
