This year the EIB is a key partner of the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF). The WCEF, a global initiative of Finland and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, brings together around 2,000 business leaders, policymakers and experts to present the world’s best circular economy solutions. The WCEF examines how businesses can seize new opportunities, gain a competitive advantage through circular economy solutions and how the circular economy contributes to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This year the conference will have a strong emphasis on scaling up the circular economy transition and highlight the themes of inclusiveness and fairness: the circular economy must benefit both the rich and the poor globally.
