Circular economy, 3rd edition of the symposium in India

FICCI is organizing the third edition of Circular Economy Symposium on 17th- 18th June 2019 at FICCI Headquarters in New Delhi.

This edition will also witness the Awards ceremony for the Frst India Circular Economy Awards.

The objective of the Symposium is to mainstream Circular Economy Principles in Indian businesses for long term value creation, both economic (extended value of products and materials for as long as possible) as well as environmental (minimizing waste generation and resource use). Alongside CES 2019, we would also be introducing the first ever “Indian Circular Economy Awards” to reward organisation doing exceptional work towards the circular economy.

Circular Economy, in such a scenario,through its innovative business models, serves as an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life. In this context, adopting the principles of Circular Economy could help organizations decouple resource requirements from growth aspirations.
FICCI in year 2017 contemplated the idea of constituting a platform – the Circular Economy Symposium (CES) with an objective to mainstream discussion and action on CircularEconomy.
The 2018 edition of the Symposium was attended by over 200 delegates from industry (including startups), government, civil society and academia and witnessed the release of a theme paper on “Accelerating India’s Circular Economy Shift”. The report highlights that Circular business growth models could spell gains of up to US $ 697 bn in India by 2030. It gives a deep insight into how Circular Economy models can radically help Indian businesses in creating sustainable value
