About the event

This conference aims to open discussion into the implications for sustainability of the development of a circular economy. A major element of resource policy globally, a circular economy is seen as reducing carbon emissions, protecting resource security, creating jobs and promoting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. However, the idea that the interests and outcomes of circularity coincide with those of sustainability is largely an untested assumption. This event presents and debates the findings of a wide-ranging project examining the implications of a circular economy with the aim of guiding progress towards a sustainable future.

Themes to be discussed:

    • Company engagement with circular economy practices and methods for improvement
    • Potential for places to benefit from a circular economy
    • Strategies for public sector practice of a circular economy
    • Assessing the sustainability of circular practices
    • Transformative policy for a circular economy
