Come and join the Circular Economy Club Manchester and IEMA!
The Circular Economy (CE) is a way of changing our exiting linear system, of take make use and dispose, to one where we design products for longevity and deconstruction at end of life, removing waste and adopting new business models and innovative practices to keep the value in our limited natural resources.
The Circular Economy Club-Manchester, in association with IEMA, invite you to a breakfast briefing, to gain understanding about the CE and to listen to some exciting developments within the field. Industry experts will explain how they’ve put circular theories into practice to benefit their businesses and the environment. There will be plenty of time for networking and sharing of ideas and of course a free breakfast!
