IPT Breakfast Meeting
A circular economy seeks to rebuild capital and ensures enhanced flows of goods and services. The adoption of a circular economy offers considerable economic benefits and it has been calculated that UK businesses could benefit by up to £23 billion per year through low cost or no cost improvements in the efficient use of resources. This breakfast meeting will: 
  • Discuss what benefits, whether they are financial, manufactured, human, social or natural, a circular economy model can bring to the UK economy 
  • Examine the challenges surrounding building a circular economy in the UK
  • Look at what role the Government will play in dealing with waste markets and growing a circular economy.
