Fragility to Sustainability: the Role of the Circular economy
Presented by Janez Potočnik
Circular economy is an instrument to deliver decoupling and should be understood as a part of a bigger picture of economic, societal and cultural transformation needed to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals. Speed and scale of the transition matters and we all need to build concrete steps and policies that can deliver most efficiently. European Electrical industry and electrical wholesalers play an important part in the journey from fragility to sustainability, journey that will certainly not be easy, but will be rewarding for the society as a whole and, if properly managed, should be profitable also for the private sector.
