The de-risking effect of the circular economy on investments

The risks of continuing to operate in a linear, extractive economic model are becoming more evident by the day, affecting not just the global economy, but the financial sector that underpins it. In this episode, we'll present new evidence from Bocconi University on the de-risking effect of the circular economy, driven by characteristics such as resource decoupling and business model diversification, creating opportunities across sectors for investors and financial institutions.

We will be joined by Max Tellini, Head of Circular Economy at Intesa Sanpaolo, an Italian bank that has taken advantage of the circular economy as a value creation strategy, and Claudio Zara, Professor and Researcher at Bocconi University, in conversation with Emily Healy, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Finance Initiative Project Manager.

Coming up:

The Circular Economy Show is a fortnightly discussion and debate around how we can move from a linear take-make-waste economy towards a circular economy.

In each episode, our hosts are joined by inspiring businesses, policymakers, academics, and designers to discuss how circular economy solutions are being scaled, at speed, to tackle global challenges and benefit business, society, and the environment.

Throughout 2021 we will be bringing you engaging conversations on topics including circular design, measuring circular economy performance at company level, financing the circular economy, and regenerative food production solutions to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss.
