Circular economy: Are we delivering?

Location: Online
22.03.2021 | 16:00 - 17:45

Moving towards a circular economy and climate neutrality is a must. Yet, delivering on these objectives require more than simply ambitious targets but effective measures to transition towards a greener and more resilient industry. Recycling plays a key role by closing the loop and thus saving both valuable resources and substantial amount of greenhouse gas emissions. Join Recyclers Talks #1 to discuss what needs to be done to deliver on Europe’s Green Agenda.
