Seminar of Circular Economy Metrics to Accelerate the Circular Economy

02Sep09:0012:00Seminar of Circular Economy Metrics to Accelerate the Circular Economy

Detalles del Evento

The Circular Economy (CE) has been the subject of intense seminars, conferences, courses, and webinars for about five years now. There is still no clear and consensual definition of what comprises the Circular Economy, nor of key concepts such as circularity and circular management and performance, nor of the steps to apply it in a practical way that is still being discussed internationally.

This seminar addresses this knowledge gap from a theoretical and practical perspective and invites reflection on the potential linkages between the Circular Economy, sustainable management programs, and performance. The seminar also explores the opportunities offered by the Circular Economy in relation to the trends and challenges that are emerging worldwide under the umbrella of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
