Circular Economy

Ellen MacArthur on Circularity in This Moment

September 10, 2020

What is the state of the circular economy today, how can we encourage stakeholders to adopt its principles, and what systemic shifts should we prioritize to advance this model’s future?

In this session, GreenBiz Executive Editor Joel Makower interviews Dame Ellen MacArthur. They discuss the importance of companies working with governments to move the circular economy forward. And MacArthur shares her sense on where companies are in addressing plastic waste and how the pandemic can be a catalyst for companies to do more more quickly.

"People have gotten used to having to jump quickly to change the system," MacArthur said. "That hopefully will set a precedent for how we can do things in the future and how we can shift quickly in a light-footed way."
