Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our times. A circular economy can play an important role in addressing this crisis. By designing out waste, avoiding pollution and keeping materials in use as long as possible, we can reduce climate emissions by about 20%. To achieve climate neutrality, we need to look beyond energy efficiency, and all work towards a circular shift across the world.
On 15 and 16 April, the Netherlands and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra will welcome representatives of governments, international organisations, knowledge institutes, the private sector, and citizens from around the globe to discuss the crucial role of a circular economy in achieving climate neutrality, to commit to bold action and scale up commitments, and to share best practices for a just transition to a circular economy.
