WCEF SITRA & SYSTEMIQ: Role of Ownership in the Circular Economy

December 3, 2020 @ 12:00 am 1:30 pm UTC

The World Circular Economy Forum (#WCEF) is a landmark event of the year that brings together business leaders, policymakers and experts to present the world’s best circular economy solutions.

This forum organises side-events that explore a plethora of topics related to the circular economy and how it is implemented across the world. The full list of side events is available here.

In a circular economy, we can own fewer products than before, but the products we own are long-lasting and repairable. Here we use services and have access to products through sharing platforms. This is good for the environment and generates new business opportunities.

But what does the change mean for businesses and what kinds of benefits can it bring? How can decision-making and legislation support this development? How is this linked to the EU Circular Economy Action Plan and its initiatives on sustainable product policy?

In this event, SITRA and SYSTEMIQ will discuss these questions, explore the role of ownership in a circular economy and present the key findings from Sitra’s Rethinking Ownership study. The expert speakers, company examples and a panel discussion will take you deeper into the role of ownership in a circular economy.
