How do data and data-based solutions support the success of circular businesses?
Circular economy solutions are needed to solve the climate crisis, prevent biodiversity loss and stop the overconsumption of virgin natural resources.
The use of digital solutions to measure, store and analyse data is a central part of circular business models. Data also opens up new business opportunities and enables the measuring of the progress and impacts of circularity.
Together with Sitra, the Climate Leadership Coalition, and the Circular Design Innovation Community, FIBS invites you to WCEF Side Event on the business opportunities of connecting data to the circular economy. The session will cover the following topics:
- Data as a source of circular business
- Optimising performance and processes through data
- The road ahead
