Growth in the Circular Economy with Tim Brown
Static Preview

In a linear economy, growth involves producing more, consuming more, and disposing of more. A circular economy gives us the power to grow prosperity, jobs and resilience in a way that doesn't damage the planet.

Tim Brown, chair of IDEO, explains why we should focus on the idea of abundance in a circular economy.

How should we understand the ‘value’ of nature?

The natural world provides all the building blocks of our lives and societies; we are embedded within it, and nothing without it. But our economies currently operate as though separate from nature, with consumption outstripping its supply of resources, and environmental degradation and instability worsening faster than ever.

What we need, argues Sir Partha Dasgupta, is to redefine the relationship between ecology and economy. His recently published Review on The Economics of Biodiversity proposes applying an economic lens to the value of the natural world to understand and measure the rich array of resources our planet provides, and how to use them responsibly. How can this approach help us to transform our extractive and exploitative relationship with nature into a sustainable and respectful one? Can quantifying the value of nature in economic terms be consistent with valuing our planet for its own sake?

An expert panel gathers to reflect on the findings and recommendations in the Dasgupta Review, and discuss how to rebuild our economic system with sustainable prosperity at its heart.

Sustainable is the new Profitable. Green is the new Digital. Covid-19 is a test-run 4 #ClimateChange
Static Preview

This is a teaser-video for brand-new 2021 keynote topic: SUSTAINABLE IS THE NEW PROFITABLE. GREEN IS THE NEW DIGITAL.

IMHO, the decarbonisation of our economy is the biggest challenge AND the biggest opportunity in this coming decade. This topic has been on the agenda for decades but had to first be kick-started by the Corona crisis: The radical decarbonisation of our economies and the ‘gradually, then suddenly‘ departure from the fossil-fuel era.


Wide-ranging new carbon taxes are inevitable, and so is the sudden end of the $3.5 Trillion global fossil fuel subsidy madness. During the Covid-19 crisis we have learned that being prepared for emergencies is utterly essential – and that we can compromise and collaborate if we have to. Covid-19 is a test-run for climate change.

The circular economy is the only economy we’ll have in 2030, and ‘sustainable’ is becoming the new ‘profitable’ within the next 5 years. Any company that does not understand how the global move towards decarbonisation will impact every segment of their business – from R&D to supply-chain to production to distribution to marketing to branding – will wither and shrink or fade away completely. Any individual that does not understand what this shift means as far as knowledge, skills and mindset is concerned, will quickly become dispensable.

In this talk, I explain why this tectonic shift is happening now, what it really means, and how to get behind it and prosper in this fork-in-the-road decade that’s coming up.

Financing and Measuring the Circular Economy - Capturing the Opportunity
Static Preview

In this session you will hear about financing and measuring the circular economy: how it helps deliver on climate and other ESG goals, while being a source of better and new growth; how the circular economy financing market has grown steeply across asset classes over the last two years; and how circularity performance can be measured to inform decision making by both business leaders and financiers.

Climate Justice: Radioactive And Toxic Waste, Racism, And Rising Oceans
Static Preview

At the recent Global Training in July 2020, former Vice President Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project continued their call to prioritize and center the environmental justice work of communities of color and indigenous communities. In this spirit, we invite you to learn about and engage with Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice's "We Can't Breathe" campaign in San Francisco's Bayview and Hunters Point (BVHP) neighborhoods, a low-income community of color (33.7 percent African American, 30.7 percent Asian, and 24.9 percent Latinx per the 2010 Census) where residents suffer from high rates of asthma and cancer and where radioactive waste and toxic contamination at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Superfund site and multiple other contaminated sites are located.

As one of the lowest-lying points in San Francisco, BVHP will also be first impacted by rising oceans, which have already risen by almost 8 inches as of 2016 and which threaten to create flooding of hazardous and radioactive waste of neighborhoods, transportation infrastructure, and the entire San Francisco Bay, while several hundred new luxury homes have been built next to and possibly on top of radioactive contamination, and 10,000 more homes are planned at the contaminated Shipyard Superfund Site where critics complain that radioactive and toxic cleanup has been marred by fraud and lax standards. Speakers will also discuss the August 25 Car Caravan Protest to San Francisco City Hall for the Bayview Hunters Point Environmental Justice "We Can't Breathe" Campaign.
