Best Practices of Circular Economy: Shaping the economy of tomorrow


Event ended.

Discover the fundaments of the circular economy and new models that will ensure that our economy can grow sustainably in the future.

Looking beyond the current 'take, make, waste' model that contributes to the rapid depletion of raw materials, w​​e need to develop new systems, new models that will ensure that our economy can grow sustainably in the future. Numerous standards and certification systems are already emerging in partial aspects of the circular economy such as material passports, lifecycle guarantees, recycled content, etc. We are looking for a global vision for this new economy and for universal agreements concerning the new business models that will be necessary to close the loop. 

In this webinar you will discover the fundaments of the circular economy, an economy where we design out waste, where nothing is lost and products, components and materials are valorized for as long as possible. 


Key takeaways: 

  • Discover the key trends and insights of the circular economy
  • Get inspired by best practices in Asia, Europe and the USA
  • Get insight in the latest progress in the development of the new ISO standards on circular economy.
