edie kicks off week of content and online events dedicated to the circular economy

Circular Economy Week 2022 (20 – 24 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.

Off the back of negotiations on the UN’s Plastics Treaty, resource efficiency is high on the agenda for businesses.

Circular Economy Week is about making change happen. From embracing circular economy principles, to spurring packaging innovation and driving collaboration across the value chain – the week will provide industry updates, thought leadership discussions and practical insights that empower businesses to accelerate the circular economy.

We will be offering up a plethora of digital content throughout the week – led by a high-level online event, two downloadable reports and a dedicated podcast discussion.

The Circular Economy Inspiration Sessions

This premium online event effectively combines two edie webinars into a single afternoon, with each webinar session taking a particular focus and format. The first session will be a Q&A-style  panel debate on the future of circularity for businesses and the second will be a series of back-to-back best practice case studies on engaging customers with the transition to a closed-loop economy.

Taking place on Thursday 23 May at 1pm, the sessions will provide best practice case studies and engaging insight on how to accelerate the shift to a circular economy.

Registrants for this online event will get access to all sessions on the day. Full details of the events are as below. Registrants will also receive a recording of the sessions following the event.
