Event Summary:

IPFA Europe: Amsterdam: Call for Action - Financing Circular Economy

TO REGISTER: please scroll down to the bottom of this webpage and click 'Book'

It is clear that the circular economy is gaining traction in both the public and private spheres.

The transition towards a circular economy is expected to generate multiple economic, social and environmental benefits. Financiers play an important role in accelerating this transition by facilitating finance for businesses and projects applying circular economy business models. We believe that the first step is to work together to understand the implications of the new economic paradigm.

Aim: Attendees will gain valuable insights and have the opportunity to discuss with senior industry practitioners and financial experts about the opportunities and challenges of financing Circular Economy.
