WHAT IS A LOCAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY?

A local circular economy is a collaborative practice sustained by the local circulation of materials, nutrients, knowledge, and economic value. Values of equity, transparency, diversity, and inclusion define its success.  In a local circular economy, business activities should regenerate natural ecosystems, minimize waste, and strive to make sure that economic and social benefits are distributed equitably. 

If you're a business owner who cares about regenerating natural ecosystems, treating your people well, and making a lasting contribution to your local economy, this webinar is for you!
