A circular economy is a systemic approach to economic development designed to benefit businesses, society, and the environment. In contrast to the 'take-make-waste' linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually separate growth from the consumption of finite resources. UN SDG 12 is: ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. Sustainable resource consumption is about doing more, and better, with less and minimising the use of natural resources. It is also about separating economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency, and promoting sustainable lifestyles.
In this live panel discussion we will be joined by Gerald Naber, Programme Manager of New Plastics Economy at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Tytti Kaasinen, Sustainalytics’ Director of Engagement Services, Ben Yeoh, Senior Portfolio Manager for RBC Global Equity and My-Linh Ngo, Head of ESG Investment at BlueBay Asset Management. Our panel will discuss how they look at circular economy and sustainable resource consumption when analysing a company, or engaging with it.
