Creating Circular Supply Chains

Supply chain matters in a circular economy; getting suppliers on board is essential for an organisation’s transition to a circular economy.

Explore the process of getting your supply chain on the same page, the many associated benefits, and examples of circular supply chain in practice with the Circular Supply Chain Network’s Founder Deborah Dull and thinkstep-anz’s Head of Circular Economy Jim Goddin.

Getting your suppliers on board is essential for an organisation’s transition to a circular economy. The problem is that global supply chains are huge. “You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big they are,” in the words of Douglas Adams, the author of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Join us for a webinar exploring the benefits and process of getting your supply chain on the same page with Deborah Dull, Founder of the Circular Supply Chain Network, and Jim Goddin, Head of Circular Economy at thinkstep-anz.

Simple, everyday products are likely to have reached you through a vast global supply chain, sometimes travelling the equivalent of a round trip to the moon, before reaching you. In the traditional linear ‘take-make-dispose’ model, these well-travelled assets may be used for a matter of minutes before being discarded as waste.

If we are to deliver a circular economy, in which the value of goods is maintained from use to reuse, remanufacturing and recycling, it’s clear that the supply chain not only has to be a key part of that transition but a key enabler of it.

The webinar will cover

  • Why supply chain matters in a circular economy
  • The role of supply chain in delivering circularity
  • Examples of circular supply chain in practice

It will be useful for

  • Senior managers
  • Procurement specialists
  • Supply chain managers
  • Sustainability managers
  • Environmental managers
  • Product developers
