Circular Economy iHub Digital Passport
Welcome to the circular economy digital passport! This is your passport to a vibrant digital community of businesses, researchers, social innovators, not-for-profits, entrepreneurs, industry associations, and community members that are co-creating innovative solutions in support of a circular economy. The digital passport will help your business develop circular business models, technologies, products, or services that design waste out of our local economy, reduce emissions, and regenerate natural systems. Participating businesses will have exclusive access to the knowledge, services, and connections needed to achieve lasting change within our community.
Embedded within Guelph-Wellington’s circular economy urban-rural living lab and testbed, the Circular Economy iHub (CE iHub) enables collaborators to focus, experiment, and test with reduced risk. CE iHub activities leverage the economic, environmental, and social value of innovations in our community and beyond. We further facilitate communication and collaboration across many interconnected projects and opportunities that uphold circular principles. Our CE iHub Connectors help you make the most of this vibrant network by expertly curating the links that best serve your business’ unique needs and potential.
