Simon Gandy, Technical Director, Waste & Circularity Lead Europe, SLR Consulting will be talking at the Irish Waste Management Conference Thursday, March 9th in The Aviva Conference Centre, Dublin and will cover the following topics:
- It is frequently assumed that the circular economy is invariably good for combating climate change
- Whilst this is a valid ‘rule of thumb’, the reality is inevitably more nuanced.
- Moreover, its impacts on wider environmental indicators may be
positive or negative.
- This presentation will review how the circular economy can influence
climate change and other criteria, by looking through the lens of life
