Webinar on 24 November: Investor Brief on recycled materials for sustainable investments

On 24 November, Mistra and Swesif are holding a webinar to support responsible investments in recycled raw materials.

Date: 24 November

Time: 10:00–11:00 am

Location: Microsoft Teams

Sixty per cent of the material put on the market every year is quickly lost. If the unique properties of a recovered material are perceived, and today’s recycling techniques are improved and scaled up, valuable resources can be retained in the economy.

More resource efficiency and less extraction of virgin raw materials also often go hand in hand with reduced greenhouse-gas emissions and a smaller impact on biodiversity.

What should investors who want to be part of the transition to a circular economy bear in mind about recovery and recycling of raw materials?

This will be highlighted at the webinar, when a new report on recycled raw materials is to be launched. Investor Brief: Recycled Materials for Sustainable Investments explains key aspects of using more recycled raw materials, with the aim of supporting sustainable investments, in comprehensive yet easily accessible terms. The report is based on results from the Mistra Closing the Loop research programme.

The webinar will be held in Swedish and is organised by Mistra and Swesif, within the framework of Mistra Dialogue.

The event is also open to non-members of Swesif. Please address any questions to swesif@swesif.org.

On the day before the event, a link to the webinar will be sent to those who have registered.
