Thinking Ahead with SEI and KTH: Circular economy in practice, benefits for society and opportunities for business, 17 Nov
A steadily increasing world population makes natural resources scarce, pushing the cost of virgin material higher and higher. Instead of digging up new metals, making new plastic and weaving new fabric – we need to rethink our current “take-make-dispose” economy and close the loop on production of goods and materials. Join speakers Anders Wijkman, Stockholm Environment Institute och Teh Club of Rome, Sofia Ritzén, KTH and Kalle Sarimaa, VD Ekokem AB to discuss how policy makers can enable the transition and how companies are shifting to circular business models.
