(MENAFN) The World Circular Economy Forum held in Helsinki commenced with a focus on climate change, pollution, waste management, renewable energy, and other critical issues affecting our planet. The event brought together expert speakers, environmentalists, and influential business figures who gathered to discuss and find solutions to these pressing concerns.
One of the central topics of discussion at the forum was the adoption of the circular economy model by companies. Many businesses express a desire to embrace this approach, but lack the necessary knowledge and practical examples to guide their implementation. The need for inspiring case studies and learning opportunities was highlighted as a crucial factor in promoting the widespread adoption of the circular economy.
A key issue addressed during the event was the importance of resource organization and wise utilization. Currently, the world faces a situation where there is an abundance of resources, but they are poorly managed. Simultaneously, a significant portion of the global population, estimated at 2.3 billion people or about 29 percent, grapples with dangerous levels of food security. The forum aimed to emphasize the urgency of managing resources more efficiently and effectively.
The World Circular Economy Forum sought to provide businesses with the necessary knowledge, enthusiasm, and practical tools to embrace the principles of the circular economy. By equipping companies with the know-how and motivation to adopt sustainable practices, the forum aimed to catalyze positive change and drive progress toward a more circular and environmentally conscious economy.
Prior to the event, Anne Vasara, the Finnish ambassador for the circular economy and energy, expressed her excitement about the forum's significance. She highlighted the multitude of events taking place during the week, emphasizing that the World Circular Economy Forum serves as the flagship event of the Finnish Innovation Fund, SITRA, and the Finnish government. The forum has been a cornerstone of the circular economy movement for several years, embodying Finland's commitment to advancing sustainable practices and fostering innovation in this field.
The World Circular Economy Forum in Helsinki represents a crucial platform for collaboration, knowledge exchange, and the generation of actionable strategies to tackle the environmental challenges our planet faces. By bringing together diverse stakeholders, the forum aims to drive the global transition towards a more sustainable and circular economy.
