In this event hosted by the OECD and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), a range of organisations will come together in two panels to discuss how to overcome the barriers to scaling up the global transition to a more resource efficient, circular economy. It will dive into the barriers faced by companies in transitioning to a circular economy and in scaling up circular business models. It will then look at the role of international actors in how to identify and implement solutions to these barriers and ensure trade and the circular economy become mutually supportive.
In both parts of the session, an initial presentation sets the scene, after which a number of key stakeholders will debate what international barriers exist to the transition to a circular economy, and how international cooperation can provide solutions to overcome these barriers.
This event is an Accelerator Session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2021: www.WCEF2021.com.
