The shift from a linear to a circular model requires a total reshuffle of the way we produce, sell and consume resources in our economy. This high-level conference will showcase cutting-edge retail and wholesale market solutions for a more circular economy, how to scale those up and how regulation can enable fast deployment. The transition towards a circular economy is a tremendous opportunity for the retail and wholesale sector to invest in innovation and research, and to create new business models.
High-level speakers will include Janez Potocnik, Former EU Commissioner, Co-Chair of UN International Resource Panel, Daniel Calleja Crespo, DG Environment, European Commission, MEP Adina Ioana Valean and MEP Kathleen Van Brempt. The programme will also feature leaders from Carrefour, IKEA, METRO, CGF, BGA, FCD and Virke.
