The Circular Economy – from making a start to making a difference

This session was held 1 March 2023.

With both sustainable and environmental procurement to the fore (driven largely by NET ZERO and recycling drivers) adopting a ‘circular’ approach to sourcing may be the short-cut many organisations need to make a bigger difference faster? 

Working out your ‘disposal’ strategy before purchase doesn’t require a crystal ball – sometimes only some reverse-sourcing and a calculator. 

This session will cover the basics of circular sourcing through to successful case studies where others have achieved a positive outcome of lower total costs, productive recycling and lower waste. 

Your expert presenter:
