To address the challenges of increasing waste flows and accelerating climate change, and to harness the economic and employment benefits of the next wave of innovation, Australia and India have the opportunity to transition their economics to become circular and powered by clean energy.

What exactly are the opportunities in circular economy and clean energy, why are they needed and how can the transition be achieved?

Eminent experts from Australia and India will discuss the changes in materials management and energy provision that will underpin prosperity in the future and highlight technical opportunities, business models and market needs.

   Australian Circular Economy Conference

This event is part of the Circular Economy Conference 2020. Unlike a typical conference consisting only of a set of speakers, ACEC20 is a ‘festival’ of events and activities. The conference will deliberate on the progress, innovation and benefits of a circular economy and shine a spotlight on the industry and businesses actively using circular economy principles. You will be able to join us virtually, wherever you are in the world.
