Australia’s business leaders recognise the importance of transitioning away from our current take-make-use-dispose model but seek greater awareness of circular practices and solutions.
With 88% of business decision-makers surveyed agreeing the circular economy would be important to the future of their business. However, only 27% could correctly identify the definition of circular economy when presented with a list of options.*
In 2023, Circularity was held at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne on 20-21 November. With the conference theme of ‘Implementing the Circular Economy’, 80 experts across 30 cross-industry sessions delved deep into circular principles with a focus on turning practical learnings into action and implementing systems change into a range of business models.
