Investing in circular economy businesses

Tuesday 4 June at 14.00-15.30

What is needed to make our economies circular by 2025? This session discusses the role of investments and finance in the transition towards a circular economy and draws on the experiences of investors and other stakeholders. What is the business case for the circular economy, what are the most successful cases and what have we learned in the past few years? Where is the money heading? How can public financing support the transition?
