Circular economics as a response to the climate crisis

To achieve net zero and avert climate disaster, does the current narrow model of GDP growth need to be re-examined? Many are now turning to the concept of circular economics as a method of ensuring more sustainable economic activity and limiting consumption.

OMFIF’s Sustainable Policy Institute is convening a public panel with the International Finance Corporation, Bank of Finland, European Investment Bank and Scope Group to discuss the role that the circular economy can play in mitigating climate change and driving a just transition to net zero. The panellists will examine life cycle assessment, how to measure impact and mitigation along supply chains, the opportunities involved and how to adopt circular business practices.
