In this committee meeting, join our key players in the industry to deep dive into what are the key success factors to build a reusable economy.

There is growing awareness and interest in building a reusable economy among businesses and consumers. Many companies are investing in sustainable and circular business models, and consumers are increasingly interested in environmentally friendly products. But what does it take for it to become mainstream? 

Various challenges remain to be solved before society becomes a reusable economy. For instance, building the necessary infrastructure to support a reusable economy, such as return/collection networks convenient for users, can be expensive; In addition to that, material producers should design products with the end-of-life in mind, ensuring that they can be reused thousand times , repaired,  retrieved and recycled at the end of their useful life. 

Building a reusable economy requires changes throughout the supply chain, including sourcing sustainable materials, redesigning products for reuse, and developing new distribution and collection systems. 

While there is growing interest and momentum towards building a reusable economy, it will require significant effort and collaboration among stakeholders to overcome the challenges and make it a reality. In this committee meeting, join our key players in the industry to deep dive into what are the key success factors to build a reusable economy.
