Transforming the traditional take-make-waste system. Creating a thriving circular economy that can benefit everyone within the limits of our planet.
This session is part of BritCham Shanghai’s SDG event series and focuses on SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
Do you know that:
Behind these figures lied unresponsible consumption where consumers made decisions not based on needs, but desire and worry of missing something. It came with tremendous environmental costs – from overproduction, exploitation of natural resources to food and packaging waste. To obtain a more sustainable lifecycle of consumption and production, more companies and consumers are investigating the ‘circular economy model, which employs not only waste management, but also reuse, recycling and responsible manufacture.
At this event, BritCham Shanghai is delighted to invite extraordinary speakers from different industries to discuss how to reduce the waste to achieve a circular economy.
