For a circular economy to flourish and be truly effective, we must create healthy, high quality materials that are fully assessed for toxic or harmful components, eliminate these and design entire product re-use and clear take-back strategies.

This session will show how Cradle to Cradle® Design (C2C) plays a critical role within the framework of a circular economy using a variety of historic and current examples, and showcasing examples of new C2C ready products, and their development from conception to market entry.
