Game Changer Session #5 - Building Value: Circular Opportunities for the Natural Resources Sectors

A circular economy offers unique opportunities for the natural resources sector and for resource-based communities and regions. This Game Changer Session will demonstrate how a circular economy offers long-term prosperity for all sectors and economies by driving value across the economy and along supply chains.

Business leaders in mining and the forest-based bioeconomy will demonstrate best-in-class examples of circularity in those sectors and identify the legislative, behaviour and market changes necessary to accelerate and scale-up the circular transition. The session will be of interest to businesses, investors and policymakers seeking to enhance circularity in natural resources and related sectors globally.

Organizers: Environment and Climate Change Canada and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, in collaboration with African Circular Economy Alliance, Circular Economy Coalition for Latin America and the Caribbean, Circular Economy Leadership Canada, Natural Resources Canada, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
