Your all-in-one free business support hub
Today’s linear ‘take, make, dispose’ economic model relies on large quantities of cheap, easily accessible materials and energy, and is a model that is reaching its physical limits. A circular economy is an attractive and viable alternative that businesses have already started exploring today. It preserves and enhances natural capital, optimises resource yields, and minimises system risks by managing finite stocks and renewable flows.
This FREE event, co-organised with Cambridge Network, will bring together thought leaders from industry, academia and the public sector to share best practice, give an honest account of successes and set-backs, and highlight which barriers and knowledge gaps need to be addressed to accelerate progress.
Delegates will have the opportunity to investigate if their expertise and interests map onto existing challenges, and are invited to become part of the solution.
