Like everywhere else in the world, a significant portion of products and consumer goods available for purchase in Copenhagen are designed in a way, which hinders reuse or high-quality recycling and cause a negative environmental impact.

Only a smaller part of the total costs of bringing a product to market is related to the design phase; nevertheless, it is in this crucial phase that a major part of the environmental impact of that product is determined. Therefore, it is crucial to rethink and redesign products and services to fit the circular economy.

It is no easy task. It requires an in-depth knowledge about the waste resource management system, which the products will eventually become part of. And it requieres innovation and change that allow for circularity at a systems-level.
