Event description
How Senator are Adapting to a Circular Economy Approach

About this event

Co-hosted by Chamber Low Carbon and The Senator Group, this event will help participants to understand the principles of Circular Economy.... what does it mean? How far do we go? Who can get involved? What are the challenges and more importantly what are the opportunities? Our speakers Chris Wilson and Andy Whyle will cut through some of the jargon for you!

Alongside guest speakers from IEMA and Chamber Low Carbon, The Senator Group will share its journey so far. This includes how we are starting to embed circular economy principles into our business – looking at what has been achieved to date, as well as future plans.

Through an open debate we will explain our approach to the Circular Economy, and the challenges/opportunities within the manufacturing sector.

There will be a range of presentations from the speakers shown below. After the presentations there will be Q&A Sessions followed by the opportunity to network.

This will take place as a HYBRID event - if you would like to attend in person please email: info@chamberlowcarbon.co.uk
