Circular Change Conference


The EU has agreed we need to transform our current 'take, make, consume, dispose' linear economy into a Circular Economy; to stop doing something today that will endanger our world tomorrow. We must re-think our standard business models - a transition to a Circular Economy is no longer a luxury, but a necessity.
