A great source of inspiration for NORNORM in bringing circularity to the office are the ideas supported by Ellen MacArthur Foundation. The foundation aims to inspire us to re-think, re-design and build a positive future through a circular economy.

It’s a new way to design, make, and use things within planetary boundaries. Shifting the system involves everyone and everything: businesses, governments, and individuals; our cities, our products, and our jobs. By designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems we can reinvent everything.
