Ethical Circular Economy
Now, more than ever businesses are realizing that setting ambitious sustainability goals is key to driving long-term profitability and corporate resilience in the face of economic, social and environmental challenges. More and more organizations have pivoted towards the concept of circular economy, as a more business-oriented, risk mitigating approach to becoming sustainable – and it isn’t about one person or department- it extends into supply chains, throughout an organization, and beyond, into the communities their businesses operate, live and serve in. The Ethical Circular Economy module is designed to inform and equip business leaders with tools to design and implement strategies for a more sustainable and prosperous future and elevate their organizations to a circular economy.
