Wednesday 27th April 2022

11:45 - 12:45 CEST


You need to be , to watch the webinar below:

The panel "Transparency and Customer Role in Closing the Loop of Circularity", moderated by Charles Ross, includes both the role of consumers as the ones making informed purchasing decisions and their role in the usage phase. How can all players in the value chain support consumers in fulfilling those 2 roles?

    • make the right purchasing decision when it comes to sustainability
    • reduce the impact during use phase (maintain, care, wash), and close the loop of circularity (repair, return, recycle)

Look forward to a dynamic discussion from the expert point of view of a material supplier, manufacturer, brand and consumer!
