What is the Circular Economy Game In the Loop? with Katherine Whalen
Episode 037: Podcast Show Notes
It’s our last episode of 2019! Today I’m sharing an episode I recorded about circular business models with Steven Curtis and Sofie Sandin, two of my colleagues at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University. This episode originally appeared on the ‘Advancing Sustainable Solutions’ podcast that Sofie and Steven co-host at the IIIEE. I wanted to share it with you all because of the insight into circular business models! In the episode we address two main questions:
- What are circular business models?
- How can entrepreneurs contribute to the circular economy?
As part of the latter question, I share a bit about what we’re learning in the C://BOOT program, where I helped mentor twenty-one budding circular economy entrepreneurs this past fall.
This episode is actually the first of three episodes from ‘Advancing Sustainable Solutions’ on business in a circular economy. You can find links to the follow-up episodes below.
FYI: the Getting in the Loop podcast will take a three-week break for the holidays and resume Jan 13, 2020 with Episode 38. Happy holidays and can’t wait to connect with you again in the New Year!

About the Show
Getting In the Loop is a weekly podcast dedicated to exploring how to transform to a more circular society. Join host Katie Whalen as she examines the challenges facing our current resource use and discovers alternatives to the ‘take, make, dispose’ way of doing things. Each week she interviews circular economy experts about what they’re doing and learning. Together we'll uncover what circular economy means in practice and find out what's being done to keep our resources in a loop rather than sent to waste. Let's get in the loop!
