We are happy to invite you to our next event hosted in collaboration with World Watch Institute Europe. Please register for tickets viahttp://www.eventzilla.net/web/event?eventid=2139086053

The current regulative barriers often prevent greater up-cycling and resource recovery, making it difficult for companies to change toward innovative business models such as leasing and sharing of services and products, or install efficient take-back systems. Additionally there is still a lack in supporting and incentivising policies to encourage and motivate businesses to start down the road towards transition. At this session we will put to discussion the assessment work made by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation on “Circular Economy Policy Tool-kit on Denmark" as a study case, as well as brining a broader European view on the matter through the work done by Accenture on best-policy examples. We will discuss these also in light of the upcoming EU package on Circular Economy.
