Join us for a ONE DAY WORKSHOP TO DISCOVER BLUE and CIRCULAR ECONOMY BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES.
The World Economic Forum estimates that 80% of the US$3.2 trillion value of the global consumer good sector is lost irrecoverably each year due to the current inefficient linear 'make, take, waste' model. How much is that worth to your business and or the local economy?
With dwindling resources, increased environmental degredation and a growing population, there's never been a better opportunity to advance our thinking by taking a systems approach to business operations and supply chains to ACHIEVE ZERO WASTE and do business better.
3000 of the world's leading scientists have spent more than 20 years providing the Blue Economy with a wealth of smart business development opportunities that turn sustainability into the biggest opportunity since the beginning of money. Whether you are responsible for or have an interest in manufacturing, innovation, sustainability, mining, agriculture, disaster management, economic development, education, R&D, entrepreneurship, business/industry or advisory services, the Blue Economy that incorporates the Circular Economy, is here to help guide, inspire and support you, your industry and community.
Join this one day workshop for an opportunity to rethink: how you do business; the technologies and systems you use; your waste streams; how you engage with your industry and community - even how you can thrive and prosper in a resource scarce world. Get a new perspective and tool kit to achieve your goals - to help you save MONEY and valuable resources, revitalise your product / service offerings, and build resilience in the communities in which you operate. (Yes - this is a win:win:win approach to sustainable development where everyone benefits!)
We will show how you can create jobs (thousands of them) working with what you have locally (including waste streams and stranded assets) - where you can't yet see value because you first need a new lens to view them with. A new blue lens that todate has generated EUR 4B in new investments and an estimated 3m new jobs, but is expected to generation 100m new jobs in the next 10 years. So join us:
