Circular economy services – Enabling a global transition through international trade
The event takes place at 10:30-12:00 CET.
New and innovative service-based solutions are at the forefront of the circular economy transition. For the circular economy transition to emerge at scale, trade and trade policy will be in a key role in facilitating the global spread of new circular economy businesses and solutions, also providing new jobs and livelihoods.
Sitra and IISD – supported by the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs – have undertaken a pilot study on how services solutions supporting circular economy are traded across borders and how their trade and international spread could be facilitated?
We hope to foster dialogue around how the global uptake of circular economy service-based solutions can be enhanced.
The event is organised in partnership with Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and IISD, and it is an official WCEFonline side event.
