Climate change and sustainability are high-agenda topics today with individuals and companies striving to initiate strategies at an individual and business level to protect the environment. 

Shannon Chamber is delighted to put the spotlight on this very critical topic and to have secured Circular Economy Author | Speaker | Consultant | Coach and Founder and Director of Rethink Global, Catherine Weetman MSc FRSA FCILT to address members on her specialist topic – The Circular Economy

Catherine is an international speaker, workshop facilitator, coach, and consultant who helps businesses, social enterprises and community groups to use circular economy approaches to build a better world. 

During this webinar Catherine will explain what the circular economy is (spoiler alert – it’s much more than recycling!). Why do we need to go circular? She will explain the risks and headwinds facing ‘business as usual’, including resource pressures, carbon and biodiversity footprints.

She will outline the 3 key circular economy strategies for business, with examples from a range of industry sectors and how they create value for people, planet and business.

This is a not-to-be missed webinar.
