The Week You Do Not Want To Miss
The circular economy is growing stronger, with companies working to rethink waste and pollution. More knowledge-institutions are looking into models of production and consumption, and more consumers are asking for more durable products.
In 2019, 64 different organizations and companies was involved, all with the aim to share knowledge and best practices. This year will be no different, and we are happy to say that next year’s Circular City Week will generate even more attention to the world of circular economy, and that even more organizations will be taking part.
ING Financial Services and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, both Pioneer Partners in the coming Circular City Week, will present their recommendations and next action steps on their circular economy journey. Tim Wilkins, Global Partner for Client Sustainability at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer says the following about their situation: “Freshfields appreciates that advancing the Circular Economy is essential to meeting the sustainability goals of our clients – whether they are in consumer products, technology or finance. The challenges can sometimes seem daunting but New York Circular City Week offers a rare opportunity for the leading actors in the field to come together to not only hear about the latest innovations but also to discover novel ways to collaborate. As such, our clients are empowered to achieve their successes at an even greater scale”.
Freshfields has convened leaders from city agencies, businesses, financial institutions, universities and think-tanks to identify key levers of change to aid New York City transition to a circular economy.
Our 2020 Focus
Circular City Week 2020 will take place from 16-22 March in New York. In addition to the events from last year, the coming week will also include activities that are more focused on facilitating corporate matchmaking, emphasizing the importance of knowledge sharing and collaborations across sectors and industries.
From our dialogue with partners and organizations the topics this year will be diverse, covering and appealing to industries such as i.e. the construction and building sector, the cold-chain and food waste industry, as well as the textiles and clothing industry. Companies and organizations are looking very much forward to sharing best practices within the individual sectors and industries.
“Over the last few months I have been in contact with more than 30 potential event hosts and we could not be more excited for the 2020 festival. Topics are truly going to be diverse, but I especially see a lot of interest from partners in hosting activities related to circular economy and the build environment, food waste and textiles.” – Tone Søndergaard, Strategy & Project Director, Danish Cleantech Hub.
