Eco Design & Circularity


Eco-design and circularity minimise waste and resource use, and are critical for supply chain professionals seeking sustainability and efficiency. They ensure that products are designed for reuse, reducing costs and environmental impact, and are in line with global eco-conscious trends.

Product redesign is a prerequisite for implementing a sustainable supply chain, as it changes what the supply chain needs to handle, with more circular loops and recycling streams compared to linear supply chains.

This section will be finalised soon. Stay tuned for updates over the coming months.

Marisa Agrasut
Managing Partner / Consultant - The inceptery Pte Ltd

On a mission to create positive impact in the world, she considered herself an accidental entrepreneur. She discovered this during the 2009 economic crisis and in 2010, embarked on her first - people, planet, profit venture; at the time challenging the negative perception of plant-based diets; enabling reduced-carbon and responsible consumption through a (then) pioneering circularity, systems-thinking, and purpose-led business.

In 2015 with a more intentional move back to her innovation roots, relocating to Singapore, she found few-to-no organisations combining both sustainability and innovation. It was this that seeded her vision for The Inceptery.
