DESCRIPTION

The International Resource Panel (IRP), in collaboration with the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP), the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF), and the World Economic Forum (WEF) will host a webinar on Tuesday, 2 February 2021 at 2:00pm CET to discuss a series of questions, including:

How does material efficiency create value for businesses?

What do the following key material efficiency strategies mean concretely for business models: more intensive use, lifetime extension, material substitution, better recycling and efficient design?

How can the buildings and mobility sectors implement more intensive use strategies for existing housing and vehicles?

What are key policy incentives for “more intensive use” and other approaches to material efficiency?

During the webinar, the IRP will launch its “Implications for Business Leaders,” an addition to the recent IRP report Resource Efficiency and Climate Change: Material Efficiency Strategies for a Low-Carbon Future. It will also feature leading business voices, allowing insight into how Material Efficiency Strategies, in particular, the strategy ‘more intensive use’, can be applied in practice.
