In this cross-functional and cross-industry roundtable, we will explore the “how” of the circular economy for functional, sustainability, and circularity leaders, discussing the leadership actions and circular solutions that are required to catalyze this shift as we reach our half-way point to the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 milestones for climate change. Key topics to be covered include circular visions and targets, essential leadership actions, and ecosystem partnership and engagement, and this session will build on the recently released Circular Economy Indicators Coalition (CEIC) Circular Target-Setting Guidance.
