Closing the loop on climate and biodiversity

The circular economy offers a gateway to systemic transformation of how we produce and consume and as such, it is one of the key solutions frameworks needed to tackle the triple planetary crisis of climate change, biodiversity loss and waste and pollution. Join this session to learn how the circular economy can simultaneously deliver economic benefits and move the system towards nature-positive outcomes.

We will present findings from our new landmark circular economy study, which will quantify the potential for circular economy levers to deliver nature-positive outcomes in the built environment and related sectors. It will also seek to enable businesses to maximise their impact through quantified economic opportunities. This study will restate the relevance of the circular economy to the next EU Commission’s policy considerations and is designed to play a catalytic role in activating the nature-positive agenda in our network and wider business community.

Organiser: Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Target audience: business leaders, policy professionals and anyone with an interest in the role of circular economy in tackling the triple planetary crisis
