Circular Economy mechanisms can effectively enable companies in their efforts of becoming sustainable: Reusing, repairing, refurbishing or recycling materials from existing products instead of extracting new resources to build products that are later discard has many advantages, especially in material-heavy industries as manufacturing. For example, it can increase resource efficiency and supports decarbonization while reducing waste and mitigating supply chain risks.
In our joint event with the UAE Independent Climate Change Accelerators (UICCA), we will not only present the findings of our latest Roland Berger study "What goes around, comes around – Circular Economy in Industrial Manufacturing" but also discuss different perspectives on how the manufacturing industry can reap the benefits of Circular Economy and what business and public leaders can do now to foster its adoption in a panel.
We would like to cordially invite you to register for our event in Dubai. In case you are not personally attending COP28, please feel free to forward the invitation to your respective colleagues who are. As on-site seats are limited, please be patient until we are able to ultimately confirm your participation.Agenda:

UAE Independent Climate Change Accelerators
UAE Independent Climate Change Accelerators (UICCA) works to propel the growth of a thriving green economy in the UAE and around the world. By convening the public and private sectors, as well as communities, UICCA advances green financing frameworks and advocates for effective policy and regulation, in order to accelerate the development and implementation of practical climate technology solutions.
Each of UICCA’s projects and initiatives is designed to achieve tangible impact and measurable results in the journey to a more sustainable future. These include a launchpad programme that accelerates climate tech solutions by providing extensive, tailored support to entrepreneurs and promising startups, and a think tank that develops and publishes research reports and policy papers.
UICCA oversees a number of community engagement platforms that raise awareness, host dialogues, and galvanise ideas and actions. UICCA is also the driving force behind a series of partnerships and sector alliances, including the Carbon Alliance – a coalition of partners dedicated to advance the development of a carbon market ecosystem in the UAE.
UICCA was founded and is led by Her Highness Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, alongside a diverse team of experts in climate research, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.
