Event Description

The road to the circular economy: the leading event giving you the tools to drive circulaity and sustainable resource management across your organisation.

Taking place on the July 5, the edie Resource Revolution Conference provides resource management, sustainability, waste, product, supply chain and design professionals with tools they need to rethink their approach to resource use and waste outputs, drive organisational efficiencies, behaviour change and profitability, and effect a revolution in their company’s sustainability credentials.

Extracting the maximum value from resources is a business critical issue. The linear ‘take, make, dispose’ model is unsustainable and leaves business exposed to multiple risks including supply chain disruption, materials scarcity, reputational damage and profit erosion. Optimising resource efficiency and eliminating waste are crucial to remaining competitive and ensuring sustainability and future growth.

The opportunities in shifting the definition of ‘waste’ to ‘resource’ are huge; the Ellen MacArthur Foundation estimates that adopting a circular economy model could provide materials savings of $630 billion in Europe alone. Embedding a resource revolution can and will drive real results, real savings and real change.

Attend this CPD-certified conference to hear insight on:

  • The perceived barriers to making the circular economy a reality and how to overcome them
  • Maximising value – shifting the definition from waste to resource
  • Sustainable product and systems design – designing out waste and keeping up with innovation
  • Driving behaviour change; internally, with board level stakeholders and consumers
  • Understanding the need for cross-sector and sector-wide collaboration
