Resource event brings circular economy and resource efficiency to the forefront

Resource Event brings European key organisations together to discuss practicalities of waste reduction, resource efficiency and circular economy strategy.

Co-located with Ecobuild at the London ExCeL in March, the newly introduced #buildcircular theatre connects Resource with Ecobuild and acts as the learning, innovation and networking hub for those who want to explore which circular economy principles could and should be adopted in the built environment.

Eleven thousand heads of operations, supply chain, resource, CSR, manufacturing and procurement will head to Resource.

Organisers UBM are promising an event that delivers the best networking, learning, inspiration and collaboration, all free of charge.

Resource Event Manager, David Bradbury, explained:

“Perhaps a sign that the show has moved on from the hyped excitement of a few years ago, the event is utterly focused on the here and now.

“We’ve listened to our visitors, we’ve made a key set of promises and have restricted every piece of content at the show to being ‘real world’ that is, pertaining to relevant strategies and examples that could be applied today in visitors’ businesses. Much ‘circular economy’ thinking is simply too broad, too big picture to feel immediate.”

Thematically, Resource includes new focus points – as well as new perspectives on consumer attitudes to ownership, furniture repair, circular textiles, food packaging and finance.

New speakers include AmecFoster Wheeler, Rolls Royce, Caterpillar, PwC, Portakabin and Philips. Resource is supported by leading organisations supporting circular economy development, including KTN, Innovate UK, BSI, Tech UK, the Association for Sustainable Building Products and World Steel Association.

Make sure you register for a free ticket to Resource, and attend the event from 8-10 March at ExCeL, London.
