Cities vs. Climate change – Cities innovating to act on climate change
Join us for the 3rd annual launch event of #CEweekLDN to learn how key actors from Barcelona, Glasgow, London, Toronto and Sao Paulo are combating the climate emergency with the circular economy.
Gain insights on the benefits of and barriers to harnessing circular economy principles to reduce consumption-based carbon emissions. And discover the approaches being taken in these major cities to drive down consumption-based emissions, how they are linking up waste management and circular economy, and the impact they are seeing from are supporting small business enterprises that provide solutions for reducing consumption–based emissions.
We’re very pleased to have Per Klevnas delivering the keynote address this year. Per is the author of The circular economy – a powerful force for climate mitigation, a ground-breaking study showing how a more circular economy could reduce greenhouse gas emissions from materials production by more than half.
