Join the launch of the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance

06 Nov 20

In the last 50 years, the biosphere upon which humanity depends has been altered to an unparalleled degree. Our current economic model, which relies on fossil resources and is addicted to "growth at all costs", is putting at risk not only life on our planet, but also the world's economy. A circular bioeconomy offers a conceptual framework for using renewable natural capital to holistically transform and manage our land, food, health and industrial systems as well as our cities. Putting forward a new economic model will require transformative policies, purposeful innovation, access to finance, risk-taking capacity as well as new and sustainable business models and markets.                                                                                                                                                                                           His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has established the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance under his Sustainable Markets Initiative to accelerate the transition to a circular bioeconomy that is climate neutral, inclusive and prospers in harmony with nature. The Alliance provides knowledge-informed support as well as a learning and networking platform to connect the dots between investors, companies, governmental and non-governmental organizations and local communities to advance the circular bioeconomy while restoring biodiversity globally. The Alliance aims to accelerate the transition to a circular bioeconomy by connecting investors to sustainable action.                                                                                                                                                                                             On Monday 16 November 2020, 19 GMT, the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance will be formally launched during the event "Driving change: connecting investors to sustainable investable solutions", with HRH The Prince of Wales. Speakers will discuss the practical actions, opportunities and challenges in advancing the circular bioeconomy, highlighting how to connect investors to sustainable investable solutions.                                                                                                                                                                                               Additional information on the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance and its launching event could be found here
