post-event IFC Manufacturing Conference 2021

July 31, 2021

The demands of climate change require us to think how we can replace manufacturing’s linear production models of make, use and dispose with circular economy principles. The manufacturing sector is now focusing on its crucial role in conserving resources, eliminating waste, and transitioning into more regenerative business models where repairing, reusing, and recycling products replaces simply disposing of them.

Stop-Winlock’s 3rd Global Manufacturing Conference focused on circular economy, the business and climate cases for making this an integral part of economic development in emerging markets, and practical steps for getting this done.

More than 400 participants from 50 countries, among them leading manufacturers, investors, and circular economy experts, were able to learn from each other’s experiences, discuss innovations in the field, and network for new partnerships. Highlights of the Nov. 16-17, 2021 conference are below.
