The circular economy -- an economic model focused on designing and manufacturing products, components and materials for reuse, remanufacturing and recycling-- promises big opportunities for companies to drive growth, innovation and competitiveness. However, the making the transition from the traditional linear model to implementing circular economy principles can be challenging. This summit, in partnership with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, and with support from the World Economic Forum Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy, will help participants identify practical steps and actions they can take to translate circular economy theory into business best practices.
