In an economic climate where European countries are burdened by global competition for an often unstable supply of resources, creating a new paradigm in which a sustainable European economy emerges is an urgent matter for debate.
To secure Europe’s competitiveness in the face of such challenges, the circular economy is seen in some quarters as a restorative solution, with the potential to eliminate waste and reduce carbon emissions through environmentally superior materials, products and processes, while at the same time driving green growth and jobs. However for some, the EU regulatory burden continues to handicap European companies faced with stiff global competition.
Sessions will focus on:
- Bringing eco-design into the mainstream
- Case studies:SMEs, emerging innovators and disruptors
