In March, REDISA participated in the 2015 European Circular Economy conference in Brussels. The conference provided a platform for policymakers and stakeholders to reflect on how best to deliver economic growth within the context of limited resources and environmental challenges. The conference focused on the debate around what role the European Union should play within Europe when encouraging investment, innovation and jobs, as well as globally in setting standards and forging pathways to sustainable economic growth. REDISA was therefore invited to provide insights and key learnings based on their experience in implementing a circular economy model in South Africa.
