This session was streamed as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Summit 2020 event, held on the 9th and 10th September.
We discussed why the circular economyA systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is based on three principles, driven by design: eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials (at their highest value), and regenerate nature. is more relevant than ever, with learnings from the Covid-19 crisis and how we can achieve a more resilient recovery with the circular economy. We talked specifically about the role of government and business in leading the transition, and the need to step up, not step back.
