London, Geneva 06 March 2019– Ethical Corporation and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) today announced they will partner together on the inaugural Circular Economy Forum ahead of the Responsible Business Summit Europe 2019
As part of their renewed partnership, WBCSD and Ethical Corporation will collaborate on a new partner-event Transitioning to a Circular Economy at the Responsible Business Summit Europe (10-12 June, London).
The Circular Forum will bring together senior-level speakers and 40+ key players to share ideas and new innovations that will help your company and others move from a linear to circular model. All attendees will be invited to share their perspectives and experiences into what a 2050 closed loop economy looks like, the critical elements to achieve it and how each sector and industry can do their part.
WBCSD is engaged in a series of activities to support business in the integration of circular economy by engaging within and across business to move the circular economy to deliver and scale solutions needed to build a sustainable world.
This June, as part of the Responsible Business Summit Europe, WBCSD will join fellow expert peers and sustainable business professionals to share tools, strategies and ideas for companies to fully leverage the 2050 vision within business operations and unlock market opportunities.
"We’re looking forward to working with Ethical Corporation to convene business leaders in the circular economy at our Responsible Business Forum workshop this June. This collaboration will offer workshop attendees an interactive experience with tangible outputs and actionable insights on circularity and the circular economy." said Brendan Edgerton, Director for Circular Economy at WBCSD.
“We’re excited to be working with WBCSD on the Circular Economy Forum, driving debate on such an important but challenging topic for business. We will work with WBCSD to leverage our respective networks and research to drive high-quality debate on 10 June. This is one of a few in-depth forums we’ll be hosting the day before our two-day Responsible Business Summit. Our ambition is to deliver actionable insights and impacts during these workshops. This workshop with WBCSD will definitely help achieve that ambition.” said Liam Dowd, Managing Director at Ethical Corporation
