The Green Business Summit in Abu Dhabi next month will include discussions on how the business world can help facilitate a shift to a circular economy. Innovators Magazine is a media partner with the Summit, organised by The Economist Events team.
With aligning the environment and the economy the theme of the high level meeting of global business and political leaders, the packed programme will take an overarching look at the roles and actions companies and policy makers should take to accelerate sustainable practices across all industries, examining the financial obstacles and mindsets that need to be overcome in the process.
The panel discussion on resource efficiency will be of particular interest to proponents of the circular economy.
“Resource efficiency, if supported by appropriate policies, leads to higher economic growth and employment. From materials to land, water and energy, how can we facilitate a shift toward a circular economy?” – the preview of the session states.
