Bridging climate action and circular economy

From 14 March 2018 11:00 until 14 March 2018 12:30

On 14 March 2018, ACR+ hosted a webinar entitled “Bridging climate action and circular economy”.

Organised in cooperation with ACR+ member Orée and CEMR in the framework of the Climate Chance Coalition on Circular Economy, the webinar presented how circular economy can provide essential support to climate friendly strategies by minimising materials, water and energy consumption, GHG emissions and ensuring that these resources are continually cycling through the economy. In practice, circular economy will contribute to reduce the need of extracting virgin resources (e.g. via the extension of products lifetime and efficiency, as well as their shared use, reuse and recycling), to develop short cycles and cascading inside value chains (therefore minimising impacts related to transport), as well as to create a positive dynamic involving all participants of the value chain or/and of a territory, generating new business and job opportunities. Non-state actors must be largely involved in the process and share the governance of circular economy strategies development and implementation, in order to contribute to the co-creation of eco-innovative actions based on synergy and complementarity, and eventually maximise the contribution of the circular economy to addressing the climate challenge.

The Climate Chance Coalition on Circular Economy is a thematic coalition of Climate Chance, an association aiming at gathering, stimulating and promoting the voice and action of non-state actors in the fight against climate change. It gathers several of those front-running non-state actors who are active in the field of circular economy.
