Circular City Week - Closing Celebration
Time & Location
About the Event
The energy and power industry have over the past years taken massive steps towards increasing the integration of renewables and improving the transmission and distribution of power. The building sector have likewise vastly increased energy efficiency and product sustainability. During the closing celebration of Circular City Week we will examine how circular economy have the potential to enable and unlock the next generation of energy sustainability.
Global leaders from the power and building industry are currently developing their plans to reach a range of highly ambition 2030 targets. These range from zero waste to land field goals, carbon neutrality and increased resource efficiency. The possibilities that circularity presents as tangible strategies to reach these goals cannot be understated.
We are on a journey and bold leadership is now needed to transform the energy sector!
