Theatre Programme Day One: 9 March 2022

Building a Circular Economy is key to a sustainable supply chain in any industry. This means eliminating waste and turning it into something new, or re-using it. Future-proofing for these sectors also plays a major role in ensuring environmental targets are achieved and goals continue to be met.

This conference area will highlight the importance of recycling and circular manufacturing solutions, as well as offer attendees advice on building a ‘green’ framework they can implement, with the support of Associations and advisors. Sessions will focus on how to close the recycling loop, the demand for low carbon products and understanding policies for material efficiency.


09.00 - 11.00 Welcome Speeches and Keynote Addresses in the Plenary Theatre

11.30 - 12.15 What Will it Take to Close the Recycling Loop?

In an ideal industrial production future, recycled materials will replace all virgin materials and we will design and create products that are easily separated, collected and recycled. The reality is that the details of Europe’s industrial transition to a circular and low-carbon economy are only just emerging, and the dream of “full circularity” is a long way off. These experts will explore what it will take to move from vision to reality.

12.15 - 12.30 Spotlight Session - AVAILABLE FOR SPONSORSHIP

12.30 - 14.00 Lunch Break

14.00 - 14.30 In Conversation With…Companies Leading The Way with 'Circular' Production Processes and Approaches
Early-adopter companies are embracing circular economy principles.
How are end buyers collaborating with industry to use fewer materials by design, manufacture longer-lasting products and use materials and resources more efficiently? And what are the lessons learned around putting these approaches into action? How are business models changing?

14.30 - 15.00 Ask an Expert: How to Transform Supply Chains to Reduce End-Use emissions
How can companies tackle scope 3 emissions? Hear the latest thinking about joint investments and alliances across the value chain. Find out what incentives are needed to get buy-in and multi-partner solutions for zero carbon future supply chains. This is your chance to ask the questions, learn and collaborate with your industry peers.

15.00 - 15.30 Refreshment Break

15.30 - 16.15 Lightning Talks: Driving Demand for Low Carbon Materials and Products
How are stakeholders in the steel, cement, aluminium, glass and chemicals sectors developing common labelling standards and markets for low-carbon products? These sharp focused talks will help your business future proof and prepare for the low-carbon future.

16.15 - 16.30 - AVAILABLE FOR SPONSORSHIP

16.30 - 17.00 All About Policy for Material Efficiency
Two years ago, the European Commission unveiled its new Industrial Strategy with measures to support industrial decarbonisation and Circular Economy Action Plan to help Europe transition to a more resilient and less wasteful economy. As the plans are translated into legislation and targets, come with your questions for experts who can help you navigate what you need to know about the EU’s next steps, policies and measures for advancing material efficiency in the cement, steel, aluminium, chemicals and glass sectors.

17.00 - 17.30 Global Cooperation for Green Industrial Transitions
What is it? Why is it important? And what are governments and stakeholders doing about it?
