GGKP Webinar | Doing More with Less for More: Rebuilding Capital in a Circular Economy
October 10, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The circular model represents a trillion dollar opportunity in terms of possible material savings, innovation and job creation, improved land productivity and soil health, and green growth. How do we get there? What are the basic principles of circular economy? What are key steps, technologies and skills for a circular future? What are circular business models? What kinds of policies stimulate and reward the adoption of circular business models and lifestyles? How can we address the ‘lock-ins’ that impede the transition away from our current ‘take-make-dispose’ economy? On 10 October (3:00-4:30 PM CEST), join the GGKP for a webinar where we will explore various initiatives that are working to ‘close the loop’ and transition our linear ‘take-make-dispose’ economy towards a resource efficient circular model. These include policy-driven circular practices in the housing and construction sector in India, approaches to boosting productivity, innovation and efficiency for circular manufacturing, and key strategies and opportunities for improvement in resource efficiency in G20 countries.
