edie's Earth Overshoot webinar: How business can #MoveTheDate through a circular economy
edie's next webinar, hosted in association with Centrica Business Solutions, will focus on how businesses can champion the circular economy and low-carbon innovation to help push back Earth Overshoot Day - the day that humanity uses up all of the planet's natural resources for the year.
This one-hour webinar, hosted on Earth Overshoot Day 2019, taking place Monday 29 July at 2pm (BST) will hear from businesses that are radically reinventing their business models and decoupling growth from resource consumption to advance a circular economy and operate within the means of our planet.
On the day of this webinar – Monday 29th July 2019 – humanity will have used up nature’s resource budget for the entire year, according to international research organisation Global Footprint Network. This is the earliest date that Earth Overshoot Day has ever been recorded.
But there is a counter-narrative: one of businesses transitioning away from linear, degenerative business models towards circular economy-based strategies based on regenerative, closed-loop supply chains.
So, what exactly does that counter-narrative look like? How are businesses collaborating, innovating and actuating to achieve a circular economy for themselves and their sectors? And what are the real levers for change that can effectively decouple business growth from resource consumption – even in the most ecologically impactful sectors?
This edie webinar, hosted in association with waste management firm Grundon, brings together resource efficiency experts with senior sustainability professionals to explore how organisations can make circularity a reality.
Speakers will be announced in due course. Register for the webinar here.
