Below is a list of upcoming circular economy events
Essential to achieving SDG 12* – responsible consumption and production – is to create incentives for businesses to work in a circular manner. Circular business models move away from traditional concepts such as ownership and volume fees, meaning that instead of selling products to a user, they are leased and taken back afterwards.
VU (VRIJE UNIVERSITEIT AMSTERDAM) researchers together with consultancies EY and Royal HaskoningDHV concluded that the new cabinet must provide certainty for entrepreneurs and consumers with a clear long-term policy on tax effects in greening, reducing emissions and introducing circular business models.
In this panel discussion, they will discuss what needs to be done to stimulate a circular economy through changing the tax system at both the European and domestic level.
*SDG12 is Sustainable Development Goal 12, titled “responsible consumption and production”, one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations in 2015.
