CSR Europe and Huawei invite you to join the 5th edition of the Sustainability and Innovation conference series on Digitalisation & Circular Economy.
With an increasing global population and economic wellbeing, the demand for products is on the rise. This increasing consumption of goods is putting a strain on natural resources needed in the production process and causes large quantities of waste that pollutes air, soil and water at a global scale.
With the circular economy, we can move away from the linear consumption pattern Produce – Use – Dispose to focus instead on a model based on Refuse, Reduce, Repair, Reuse and Recycle. In a fully circular economy, there is no waste, because all waste becomes a raw material for a new product. This thus eliminates waste and reduces the need for virgin raw materials. Digitalisation is a key enabler of this transition to a circular economy. Together with online platforms, they contribute to improving:
- Predictive maintenance
- Sustainable consumption patterns
- Product as a service
- Transparency & recyclability
