In preparation for our #Sustainability2030 Online Hackathon in collaboration with Porsche end of May we’ve created a series of meetups to give you the chance to learn more about the participating ventures and their social impact.
Circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems. It is an emerging field of action for global automotive OEMs around recycling of car components, cradle-to-cradle approaches and new material concepts. The current system is no longer working for businesses, people or the environment. Protecting our natural resources and making the best use possible out of the ones we exploit is a key goal for our society.
How can technology solutions reduce waste?
How can we turn the linear economy into a circular?
How can we change design principles and implement innovative solutions in the automotive industry?

A plan that 193 governments have agreed, a plan that the world wants and needs. A plan backed by leading business and organisations. A to-do-list for the planet that will only be achieved if everyone plays their part.
