Description

Circular Economy – Closing the Loop - 6 June 2019

We are on the forefront of a global change in terms of business and corporate approaches to sustainability and environmental practises across all industry sectors. While talk of developing ‘sustainable’ businesses has become increasingly commonplace, we need to find and develop new ways to ‘close the loop’ for business and industry across the board. It is not uncommon for business leaders to find themselves at a loss for understanding how they may implement new systems into their current businesses to enhance their sustainability performance and reduce their social and environmental impact.

In this presentation our speakers will discuss some of the key themes within the topic of ‘Circular Economy’ and the way in which strategies relating to circular economy may be applied to business and industry to generate new revenue streams and enhance sustainability performance. Further, this event aims to provide insight and guidance on how to elevate productivity and profitability through applied practice of ‘Circular Economy’ principles and strategies.

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry, in partnership with Bureau Veritas, invites you to join us for our next Business Briefing about Circular Economy on Thursday 06 June 2019 from 7.30am to 9.30am at the International Chamber House.
