WCEF23 Accelerator Session: Nordic Learnings for transforming to a circular business

Accelerator session: Nordic learnings for transforming to a circular business

This event is an Accelerator Session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2023.

Helping Nordic companies become more circular is a key task for Nordic Innovation.

Together with Accenture and Sitra, we have developed two Nordic Circular Economy Playbooks that give companies concrete tools for the transition. Based on the playbooks, Accenture will present findings on where the Nordics are and what is needed to scale and facilitate discussions of Nordic Learnings for transforming to a circular business. 

Go to the Nordic Circular Economy Playbook 1.0

This session will be interactive and is an opportunity for participating companies to discuss, share learnings and get inspiration from other companies. The session will consist of multiple round tables that will be facilitated by peer Nordic manufacturing companies and will gather participants from different regions and industries to discuss possibilities, barriers and solutions from different perspectives. This also gives you a chance to meet and network with companies from all the Nordic countries.
