How do large multi-national companies help the transition to a circular economyA systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is based on three principles, driven by design: eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials (at their highest value), and regenerate nature.?
Over the last few episodes, we’ve heard from policymakers, designers, and global changemakers about their role in shifting from a linear take-make-waste economy, to a circular one, where waste is eliminated, resources are circulated, and nature is regenerated.
In this episode we hear how two large organisations are adapting the way they do business to scale circular economy solutions.
Charlie Downes-Jackson, Global Director, Advanced Concepts at Timberland, discusses how the business and its parent company, VF Corporation, is working towards ensuring its key materials are regenerative, renewable or recyclable by 2030.
But first Wouter Vermeulen, Senior Director Sustainability Europe at The Coca-Cola Company, shares some of the ways the business is moving away from single-use plastic, and what he has learned on the journey so far.
This is the final episode in this series featuring conversations recorded at Summit 22 — the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's flagship annual event — which brought together business leaders, policymakers, innovators, and global changemakers to explore how we can redesign our economy so that it regenerates, rather than destroys, the natural world.
We’ll be back soon with more episodes featuring stories from the circular economy. Until then, explore our back catalogue for more inspiration. Thanks for listening.
