About the event:

We work in a linear economy, how can we make it more circular, so that there is no longer any ‘waste’? An economy that is more circular strives to make use of everything.

Raw materials are made into goods and products with a limited life cycle and later disposed. Resources are wasted and the environment can be harmed. Producers and consumers are exposed to volatile or rising commodity prices. Demand is growing, but against a backdrop of high fossil fuel costs and water and land scarcity.

Designing processes that make the best use of all the biological and technical materials in production, processing, transportation etc. is vital in addressing this unsustainable situation.

This panel discussion will look at what conditions need to arise to enable a move towards this, with particular emphasis on the food supply chain and the transporting and processing of food.

Prospect has convened a panel of experts with UK and international experience to discuss. We hope you can join us to debate and consider the issues. The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
