Planet

There’s rising geopolitical and geo-economic tensions, massive technological change and a host of social and environmental challenges that are more prevalent than ever. We are pushing planetary boundaries to their limits, both people and planet are facing potentially catastrophic consequences if we don’t change our global systems. Our current linear “take, make, waste” model is highly resource intensive, and is a major contributor to these environmental challenges. The circular economy is a powerful alternative whereby entire value chains are transformed to eliminate waste and keep resources in productive use, all while offering significant financial benefits, supply chain resilience, and competitiveness.

  • Learn the “Circular 101” - What is the circular economy, and key frameworks and enablers?
  • Understand the environmental and business imperatives - Can business growth actually lead to a healthier planet?
  • Unlock what this means for my business - How can retail companies capture circular value and pivot to new growth areas?
