Find the balance: push the market and encourage development during the contract.
Create alignment: link the organisation’s goals to the procurement practices.
Appreciate innovation: dedicate sufficient time and resources to finding new solutions.
Use existing knowledge: network, tools and experience sharing.
Four-day long celebration of the circular economy in Dublin running from 29 May to 1 June 2023. A unique gathering of international experts, industry leaders and forward-thinking individuals, dedicated to advancing the circular economy agenda.
Some circular economy practitioners believe that switching to biomass is the best way to implement the circular economy. However, the circular economy is not synonymous with bioeconomy. The circular economy is about retaining the value of materials for as long as possible, and consequently it cannot be achieved simply by adding more and more primary biomass to the economy. Demand for biomass is increasing rapidly yet supply is limited, leading to problems for climate and biodiversity.
Join our panellists on 13 June at 10:00 - 11:30 CEST to discuss the intersections between the circular economy, bioeconomy, climate change and biodiversity. The event will explore the circular economy's role in balancing biomass supply and demand and reducing negative impacts on biodiversity and climate change.
The construction of buildings and infrastructure and the planning of the built environment have a significant influence on the environment and climate. Local initiatives demonstrate the powerful effects of entrepreneurship and proximity in catalysing grassroots change. At the same time, fostering collaboration between local and regional initiatives can help to increase impact and inspire others. How can local initiatives play a role in the global transition to a circular economy?
This event is an accelerator session of the World Circular Economy Forum 2023 and will take place on 1 June at 14:00 - 14:50 EEST (13:00 – 13:50 CEST) at Sokos Hotel Vaakuna, Helsinki, and online.
Local initiatives exemplify the power of entrepreneurship and grassroots action in expediting the shift to closed-loop plastics value chains.
