Event host information:
As Australia steps up its collective efforts on the road to NetZero, governments and organisations are increasingly interested in building their understanding of the key principles around the Circular Economy. A solution to help alleviate resource scarcity and waste overload, it promotes the regenerative model of make, use, return.
In addition to reducing emissions, resource use, waste and harmful environmental impacts, transitioning to a more circular economy potentially offers significant economic benefits. Recent modelling by PwC indicates that in Australia a more circular economy could generate $1,860 billion in direct economic benefits over twenty years and save 165 million tonnes of CO2 per year by 2040.
Join CEDA and a panel of experts to discuss the challenges and opportunities for transitioning to a circular economy in Australia - and hear directly from an organisation that has already made the leap.
Livestream start times:
Open to the public and free for CEDA members.
