To ensure environmental sustainability and prevent further depletion of earth’s resources, society needs to shift away from linear economy model towards resource efficiency and circular economy that designs out waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to playing a part for the environment, companies could also tap on the opportunities ahead and reap commercial value through the process. Dr Marcus Gover, CEO of WRAP, will share insights on the challenges and best practices on resource efficiency and circular economy in UK from Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP)’s research and initiatives with stakeholders; and the challenges and opportunities ahead for industries globally.
