Rethinking ownership: The role of ownership in a circular economy
The event starts at 13.00 CET and lasts until 14.30 CET.
Ownership is changing. In a circular economy, we own fewer products than before, but the products we own are long-lasting and repairable. We use services and have access to products through sharing platforms. This is good for the environment and generates new business opportunities.
But what does the change mean for businesses and what kinds of benefits can it bring? How can decision-making and legislation support this development? How is this linked to the EU Circular Economy Action Plan and its initiatives on sustainable product policy?
In this event, we discuss these questions, explore the role of ownership in a circular economy and present the key findings from Sitra’s Rethinking Ownership study. The expert speakers, company examples and a panel discussion will take you deeper into the role of ownership in a circular economy.
The event is targeted at companies seeking growth through the circular economy and decision-makers working with the circular economy and sustainable product policies.
This event is an official WCEFonline side event. Event is organised by Sitra and SYSTEMIQ.
Rethinking Ownership is a European-wide initiative by SYSTEMIQ and University College London.
