A Circular Economy towards Sustainability

Jodie Bricout

How you can be a part of a future where we produce, deliver and consume goods and services more sustainably.

You’ve probably heard of the term ‘circular economy’ before, but what does it actually mean?

A circular economy is an approach to economic development that is designed to benefit businesses, society, and the environment.  At their core, circular approaches aim to develop better ways of making, delivering and using goods and services so that they last longer by being shared, repaired, repurposed or remanufactured.  And it’s much more than just recycling!

Join us for a discussion led by internationally recognised circular economy expert and researcher, Jodie Bricout, as we delve into what a circular economy is and how we, as the next generation of business leaders, can help organisations to operate more sustainably.
