Join Our Transitioning to Circular Economy in Textiles, Electronics, Plastics/Packaging Workshop on 1 Oct 2019 in Cologne

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.
