About Circular Initiative
The world as we know it has changed. The times are challenging, but also full of opportunities. Collaboration, innovation and technical development are more important than ever, not to mention concrete plans and bold goals.
Circular Initiative started with the realization that we now use more resources than the Earth can provide, and the desire to turn that around. We know, for a fact, that circular and sustainable material flows have a substantial impact on the climate. A quarter of our global annual emissions are directly connected to the production of materials.
We want to be part of the solution and improve the way we care for the Earth’s resources. To achieve that, we need to close the loop and keep products and materials within the system for as long as possible. The manufacturing industry can do more to prevent waste from being generated and make better use of the residual material that does arise at various production stages. With technological development and new, wider collaborations, resources can be preserved and more circular flows created.
Circular Initiative is an extraordinary event showcasing the power of circularity for business profitability. The main aims are to initiate collaboration, highlight common goals, and support cross-company actions that will turn circularity into profitable business, as well as guide future sustainable and prosperous endeavors.
The initiative is run by Stena Recycling, with collaborative partners from various industries, such as Investor AB.
