PACE at COP27: Circularity for Climate

Article subtitle

PACE has organised two events at COP27 exploring key topics emerging from our new paper; the importance of circularity for the clean energy transition, and linking circular economy targets to climate impacts. Join us.

As the global public-private leadership platform that supports doubling global circularity to advance climate-neutral and inclusive economies, PACE is taking part in the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Egypt.

With the newly released paper 'Circular Economy as a Climate Strategy'which details how circular strategies can reduce emissions, support the clean energy transition and enhance climate change adaptation with nine calls-to-action, PACE has organised two events to discuss this in depth with key stakeholders:
