Digitalisation & Circular Economy Conference
Digitalisation and circular economy have the potential to drive our society and economy towards sustainability and transform the way we do business and live our lives. The 5th edition of the Sustainability and Innovation Conference, organised in collaboration with Huawei, will focus on Digitalisation & Circular Economy. Join us on 20 February 2020 and discover how companies can benefit from circularity and digitalisation.
Due to a growing world population and the current economic prosperity, the demand for products and services is on the rise. This increasing consumption, however, is putting a strain on the natural resources needed in the production process and results in large quantities of waste that pollutes air, soil and water on a global scale.
The circular economy tackles these sustainability challenges by moving away from the linear consumption pattern of Produce – Use – Dispose, to one based on ‘Repair, Reuse and Recycle’. In a fully circular economy waste is minimised, while products and resources are kept in use and natural systems are regenerated. In this context, digitalisation is a key enabler as it will provide companies with the infrastructures that are necessary to facilitate a quicker and smoother transition. At the same time, digitalisation helps companies to build strong partnerships across sectors and supply chains.
Big data, digital platforms, smart devices and apps, IoT, AI and blockchain have great potential and are already used by companies to support the implementation of circular business models worldwide. These digital solutions act as a catalyst to maximise the environmental, social and economic benefits of the transition.
