  • Climate Crisis
  • Circular Economy

Responsible for three quarters of greenhouse gas emissions, cities are a key factor in the battle for a stable climate and have the power to create a low-carbon circular economy. City leaders are already taking practical steps to boost car-sharing, modular energy efficient building and sustainable management of organic waste streams. They are also exploring new models of consumption that reduce emissions while creating jobs and strengthening industries. Making more efficient use of energy, materials and assets puts cities in the driver’s seat for emission reduction. Step up your city’s circular game as we discuss:  

  • What benefits can a circular economy transition in key urban systems bring to cities?  
  •  How are some of the leading cities in the world transitioning toward smarter and more sustainable urban solutions?   
  •  How can private and public stakeholders collaborate and what are the barriers for integrated action amongst industry and solution providers to ensure cities are more equitable, more sustainable and better connected?
