The Circular Economy Action Plan of the European Union underscores the imperative transition from a linear to a circular economic model, essential for both economic growth and resilience in the face of resource depletion. As Circular Economy remains a relatively emerging concept, navigating its complexities presents challenges for businesses.

The Circular Economy for Enterprises workshop seeks to aid industries and companies in Denmark and Europe by offering insights into the latest advancements in Digital Product Passport, Standardization, and Product Design within the Circular Economy.

The format includes three parallel workshops facilitated by sector experts, providing participants with the opportunity for active engagement. Additionally, two keynote speakers from Danish industries will share successful implementations of circularity and sustainability. The event concludes with a networking session featuring complimentary drinks.

You can participate online and in person (limited number of seats in case of physical attendance). Keynote sessions will not be streamed.
