About the webinar

In the context of resource efficiency and the need to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the circular economy appears as a solid alternative for designing and redesigning systems to improve efficiency, reduce pollution and regenerate natural systems.

In the transition from a linear to a circular economy, diagnostic tools are often lacking to analyze the current or initial situation in an objective manner, in order to understand and evaluate the best strategies to implement to achieve greater circularity.

This webinar will present a diagnostic tool for the circular economy developed by the Argentine Business Council for Sustainable Development (CEADS, for its acronym in Spanish) with the support of GIZ, to evaluate business initiatives in an objective and replicable manner in terms of innovation, degree of maturity, impact and scalability of practices, among other aspects. Likewise, the case of Arcor, a Latin American mass consumption company that has successfully adopted circular economy strategies in its operations, will be presented. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LAC LEDS Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org
