GREEN TALKS: Moving towards a Circular Economy

GREEN TALKS is State of Green’s new digital flagship service aimed at a global audience. Through monthly webinars, different aspects of the global green transition will be examined and discussed, and participants will get the chance to hear from a range of relevant and interesting speakers.

The event on 3 September will focus on circular economy and its green transition potential.

The circular economy concept has become an integral and paramount aspect of the global green transition. There is an ever-growing pressure on natural resources like energy, water and materials for production with more and more people living on the globe. Today we are approximately 7.6 billion people in the world population and the way we use our resources today, would mean that the earth would have to be 1.7 times bigger to meet our resource demands.

In order to meet today’s and future resource challenges, circular economy models are being implemented. Moving towards seeing waste as a resource and integrate the 3 R’s; reduce, reuse, recycle. In essence, it means an end to waste and the chance to create a new type of inclusive, sustainable economic growth.
