How to enable organisations and their value chains to innovate towards more viable, sustainable and competitive economic models? What steps do companies need to take to transition to a Circular Economy Business Models (CEBM)? Do they need to focus on the enablers and the barriers of the markets and policy making? Find answers to these questions and more in our Transitioning to Circular Economy in Textiles, Electronics, Plastics/Packaging Workshop.

As increased attention is placed on the production, consumption and disposal of products around the world, business leaders are recognising the growing need to transition to a Circular Economy. There are many benefits to transitioning to a CEBM, such as great business opportunity to improve economic growth, produce substantial net material cost savings, create more jobs and increase innovation. Although there are barriers and questions to adapting this process, a few companies have addressed these and made the successful transition to circularity.

By participating in this workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn from a consortium of experts, as well as potentially collaborate with fellow attendees representing multiple sectors of industries. Experts will share their rich insights, examples and tools to inspire your next steps and possible partnerships in your journey to implement and further scale up sustainability and circularity. This workshop is organised as part of the European Union (EU) “R2Pi – Route to Circular Economy” project, in which 16 partners from 9 countries have contributed to analysing business models, political frameworks and developed practical tools and methods to accelerate the transition to circularity.

For our future generations to inherit a sustainable planet, it is crucial for us to protect the environment in ways that promote health and reduce inequities. The Horizon 2020 research project INHERIT (INter-sectoral Health and Environment Research for InnovaTion) promotes this by identifying ways of living, moving and consuming that protect the environment and promote health and health equity.

The CSCP contributed to the 4-year research project INHERIT by creating four future scenarios, which show European societies where healthy, sustainable and equitable lifestyles have been adopted. The CSCP also led the process by organising workshops with citizens in five European countries to understand their aspirations and wishes for a better future. To know more about the future 2040 scenarios, click here.

The final conference will take place against the backdrop of closing the 4-year EU research project INHERIT, which brings together 18 partners from across Europe, coordinated by EuroHealthNet.

Meet the CSCP on 10 December at the final INHERIT conference. Also, hear speakers from across Europe at international, national, and local levels about practical, implementable, and scalable solutions to bring about this more sustainable future, in line with the global targets set by the Sustainable Development Goals.

This full-day high-level event will also prompt you to consider what you can do as an individual, a consumer, a professional, and a voter, to contribute to more sustainable lifestyles that respect planetary boundaries and promote health and well-being.
