Exploring the European Green Deal & Circular Economy at Scale

Janez Potočnik was European Commissioner for Environment from 2009 until 2014, and during his tenure initiated the European Resource Efficiency Platform, which resulted in the adoption of the first European Circular Economy Package. He currently acts as co-chair of the International Resource Panel (IRP) and serves as a special advisor on sustainability to European Commissioner for the Environment & Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius. In this episode, we will be looking back on almost 10 years of European circular economy development, asking Janez what fundamentals of the economy need to be challenged to reach scale... and what mechanisms or governance models need to be leveraged in the process.More on C-19 economic recovery: https://www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org/our-work/activities/covid-19Thank you for listening to this podcast.
