“The Role of Business in the Circular Economy”: Third meeting on ’’Understanding the link between the circular and digital economies’’

0

Closed meeting, participation is open only for Task Force members.

The combination of circular economy models with a new wave of technological revolutions, such as digital and engineering technologies, can help re-shape linear-economy structures towards circular structures. For example, the internet of things, which enables a networked connection of physical objects, can help remove some of the stumbling blocks for achieving circularity between production and consumption. Pairing these types of technological innovations with circular principles can offer ample opportunities in several sectors such as waste management, energy, agriculture, manufacturing and built environment. However, there are several barriers that need to be removed in order to unlock the potential provided by the combination of circular economy principles and digital technologies. This Task Force meeting will discuss the linkages between the circular and digital economies and the policy support needed to remove existing barriers and bottlenecks.
