Organizations must develop and implement more sustainable actions, not only to remain competitive, but also to respond to consumer demand and comply with new European legislation.
The Circular Economy is a key factor for any organization to achieve sustainability in its activity, which will provide a systemic view of the problems and find sustainable solutions that will help to reduce the extraction and the use of materials, and to recover end-of-life materials.
This webinar will take place on 29th July 2021, at 6 p.m. and will focus on the main principles and some practical examples of Circular Economy in various sectors.
Free webinar. Prior registration is required.
