Webinar - Circular Economy: opportunities and risks in M&A

Circular economy

Transition to the circular economy is one of the six environmental objectives in the EU Taxonomy Regulation, which is intended to redirect capital flow towards sustainable projects.

How can circularity be measured, and how circular does one have to be to qualify? What constitutes a substantial contribution and how can we look for opportunities and risks in potential acquisitions?
