Delegation of the European Union to Australia

WEBINAR: Circular Business Models & Market Transformation, Tuesday 1 December from 5PM (AEDT)

25/11/2020 - 00:57
Online activities

This webinar is brought to you by the European Union-Australian Climate Business Network and the Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia.

TIME: 5-6 PM (AEDT)

Australian jurisdictions have a shared vision of transitioning to a circular economy and this shift involves fundamental changes across value chains - everything from the design of products and circularity of materials flows, to creating the right incentives and legal structures to stimulate circular business ideas.
 
Equally essential is the consumer, who must be encouraged to create demand in order to drive the success of the circular economy, alongside investment capital and innovative financial instruments that reflect the changing money flows and risks of these new ways of doing business.

The webinar is an opportunity to hear about the European experience in circularity with presenters including an advisor to the European Commission on the EU Circular Economy Action Plan, an expert from the Finnish Innovation organization SITRA on the practice of new business models, as well as learn from a case study on new ways of collaborating between an Australian and Netherlands business partnership.
