Event Description

A new decade just started, and it is already predicted that the circular economy will accelerate to a new level in 2020. Winning strategies for businesses have been proposed and circular business models have been optimized in the recent years. The next step is to mainstream circular business models and unlock the massive economic potential.

At its core, a successful circular business model starts with product design and with the aim to design out waste. What are the key drivers we need to attack in 2020 to reach the next level of mainstreaming circular business models in New York versus Denmark?

Denmark is among the most efficient countries in the world when it comes to waste and resource management. The Danish waste management and resource sectors are experts at collecting and treating waste to minimize environmental impact and efficient reuse of materials.

In this program, six Danish companies will be presenting applied circularity.
