Circular Economy Event - documents available for download

Posted on 15 July 2011

A joint CLCF & YESI event was held on the Circular Economy on the 6th October 2011 at the Ron Cooke Hub, University of York. The key note address was given by the Chair of the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee.

The event was focussed on how can we respond to the twin challenges of increasingly limited global resources and rising demand for fossil fuel based products. The traditional linear approach to product and system design – make, use and dump – is no longer sustainable. Full cycle whole-system thinking provides an alternative option, and for early movers, embraces sustainability for competitive advantage. This event heard real life solutions from international corporations, academic researchers, and Government departments responsible for delivering and implementing policy.
