|Location||1 Excel Centre, E16 1XL
|Details||A resource constrained world demands new thinking and new business models. Representatives from extraction, design, recycling, manufacturing, retail and resource recovery must come together to capitalise on the commercial opportunities of a circular economy.
Resource is the first major conference and exhibition for organisations looking to develop strong resource strategy and resilient resource security, providing opportunities to collaborate, partner, network and learn.
There is an urgency to act now to insulate the supply chain against volatility and the threat of uncertain supply. Those who don’t act now will suffer huge business risk of fluctuating materials costs and supply chain disruption. Those who act now can be sure of quality resource supply, and will develop strong relationships with long term customers. The changes will be gradual, and the process is laden with opportunities and threats.
‘Waste’ is now a valuable resource, both as an energy source and a supply of valuable materials.
Every company has its own approach to resource security, recycling and supply chain sustainability – learning and partnerships are crucial to progress. Business models are changing to recover and prevent valuable resource from becoming waste: now is the right time to strategically engage with major organisations and lay the foundations of closed loop business models.
