Smartening up: Fast-forward to less Waste and Zero Pollution
Thu, May 27, 2021 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM CET
It is now becoming abundantly clear that we are all part of an ill-calibrated economic system designed to conquer, transform and dispose of physical resources. As with all skeletons in the closet, our “out of sight, out of mind” approach to waste and pollution is inevitably coming back to haunt us.
The time is ripe – we need to smarten up and fast forward to zero waste and pollution!
Our Circular Economy webinar will explore plastic flows in the EU, pollution resulting from associated material streams as well as broad solutions which could support the increase of circularity in the manufacturing and use of various plastic products. The webinar will also provide a glimpse into some of denkstatt’s exclusive Circular Economy insights, which have been inspired from dealing with real-life business problems. In particular, attention will be paid to assessing the circularity of businesses, followed by a discussion of the role of packaging materials in the FMCG industry, and wrapping up with a review of the effects of upcoming Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for textiles.
Register now for free – we are looking forward to sharing our knowledge with you!

- Exploration of EU plastics flows;
- Circularity Assessment techniques;
- Improving the circularity of plastic packaging in the FMCG industry;
