Dublin Chamber is delighted to invite you to the next event in our Sustainable Dublin 2050 Series on Thursday 3rd September. This event will see our Key note and panel of speakers focus on the topic of Circular Economy.
What is a circular economy?
Our current economic system is not circular, it is linear. In a linear economy, we take resources from nature to create products. These products are used and then thrown away. However, an economy that is based on taking, making, and disposing of products causes significant environmental problems. The way we live in Ireland and in most European countries is unsustainable, depleting the world’s limited resources and creating ever more waste. If every human used as many resources as Europeans, we would need 2.6 Earths to support our population. Realising the limits of our planet’s resources, a new way of thinking has emerged: the circular economy. The circular economy aims to create positive value for society, economy and the environment.
It is based on three principles:
Design out waste and pollution
Keep products and materials in use
Regenerate natural systems
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
