Global Leadership Program on the Circular Economy

Preparing leaders for the transformation to a circular economy


Some of the most pressing challenges facing nations today include rapid urbanisation, resource scarcity and poverty. These issues can be best addressed by a circular model for economic and social development.

A Circular Economy eliminates waste and replaces it with a circular flow of materials and energy based on waste reduction, reuse, recycling, repair, refurbishing and remanufacturing practices. This approach achieves environmental sustainability, improves businesses competitiveness, generates employment, increases green investment and establishes inclusive governance.

The Global Leadership Program on the Circular Economy has been developed by Green Industries SA in partnership with international experts Dr. Prasad Modak of Ekonnect Knowledge Foundation and Environmental Management Centre LLP and Hemant Chaudhary, Circular Economy Alliance Australia.
