Geneva, 11 March 2021 – Today, the Circular Economy program of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) launches Episode II of Circular Views – the podcast series to learn about the circular economy.

As the momentum around the circular economy continues to grow, more and more companies become interested in how they can start their journey. Though the business opportunity and the positive environmental impact of the circular economy is increasingly evident, much of the material available remains highly theoretical. We imagined the Circular Views as a medium to provide more insights in this space through discussions with business leaders from companies at the forefront of the circular journey.

For the second episode, we invited Cordula Mock-Knoblauch from BASF, Devin Giles from International Paper and Tiina Pursula from Stora Enso, all members of the circular bioeconomy project to discuss why the circular bioeconomy is a central solution to address key environmental issues while unlocking significant business opportunities. They have shared with us the reasons they have decided to embark in the circular bioeconomy journey, some of the key trade-offs they faced and how they are starting to address them. At the same time, they have guided us through practical examples of how they implemented the circular bioeconomy.

Stay tuned for more episodes of Circular Views.
