Future-Fit business: how the circular economy creates competitive advantage... and a supply chain revolution
Catherine reminds us of the questions and issues keeping business and supply chain leaders awake at night
Our world is changing at an ever-faster pace. Global business leaders and, increasingly, governments, are adopting circular economy strategies to help their organisations become ‘future-fit’. As they examine risks on the horizon and build a business case for a change in direction, they ask:
• How do we become future-fit? What does it mean for business?
• What challenges does this present, compared to ‘business as usual’?
• What is the circular economy? Intelligent designs for products, services and infrastructure, circular business models and principles along the ‘design and supply chain’ are much more than Recycling 2.0
• The implications of increased complexities and multi-dimensional flows for supply chains.
Catherine provides impactful, cutting-edge insight into the future of the circular economy, generating key discussion points for implementation in your own operations.
Catherine Weetman helps businesses develop ‘future proofed’, resilient strategies, assessing sustainability risks and value opportunities. A Visiting Fellow at Huddersfield University and Vice-Chair of the CILT Environment and Sustainability Forum, her logistics career includes Kellogg, Tesco and DHL Supply Chain.
A Circular Economy Handbook for Business and Supply Chains, published by Kogan Page, includes a wealth of wide-ranging real examples.
