“Take, make, use, dispose,” is the traditional model our global economy has operated by for generations. Due to the buildup of waste and the growing challenges posed by climate change, companies and communities around the world are trying to make the transition to a circular economy model, which aims to minimize the use of resources and the production of waste. But implementing this circular model requires rethinking how we produce products and changing consumer behavior. 

In this session, leading experts will discuss how we can accelerate the transition to a truly circular system in which products and their materials are kept in the economy. What are the greatest challenges and opportunities on the path to circularity? And how can circularity be a key driver of business growth across economic sectors?
