Circular Economy Week: edie kicks off week of resource and zero-waste themed content and events

Circular Economy Week 2023 (22 – 26 May) is edie’s themed week of editorial content and events dedicated to supporting sustainability, energy and resource efficiency professionals in accelerating the transition to an economy free from waste and single-use plastics.

Online event

This online event effectively combines three edie webinars into a single afternoon, with each webinar session taking a particular focus and format. The first session (one hour) will be a Q&A-style discussion around waste management and resource efficiency; the second session (one hour) will be a series of quick-fire circular economy business case studies; and the third session (45 minutes) will take a ‘masterclass’ format focused on eliminating single-use plastics. Our partners for this event are Reconomy, BSI, Beyondly and JRP Solutions.

Registrants for this online event will get access to all three sessions on the day. The event will be recorded and registrants will also be able to access a recording on-demand.

During the week, edie will publish an update to its edie Explains business guide to the circular economy.

What does the circular economy look like in practice? Which organisations are most suited to going circular? And what are the business benefits of doing so? This latest edie explains guide answers all of these questions and more to help sustainability and resource professionals understand exactly how they can accelerate the circular economy transition.

Interviews and blogs

Throughout the week edie will be running a variety of in-depth features and exclusive interviews with experts and businesses focused on the circular economy.

Expect to see edie’s ongoing #SustyTalk series take up a closed-loop theme with interviews with Vodafone and WRAP.

The edie content team will also be running features exploring e-waste, plastics credits and closed-loop policies, speaking to a host of experts on those matters.

Special edition op-eds will also run throughout the week from the organisations that need to drive circularity because of their production levels, and those trying to champion change through new supportive frameworks.
