As an effective means of reducing unsustainable levels of waste production, the Circular Economy has been widely embraced amongst policy and resource professionals. However, the other side of the circular economy equation, involving the reuse of materials and resources at the ‘front end’ of the economic cycle – that is, ‘circular’ design for circular business models and ‘circular’ consumption – has remained stubbornly elusive.

In this webinar, the panellists explore what more could be done from the design, business, consumption, and policy perspectives to hasten the implementation of the circular economy. The panellists are based in South Australia, the first Australian state to champion the adoption of the circular economy.
