Under the theme “Circularity 2030”, The 8th Responsible Business Forum (RBF) on Sustainable Development will focus on rethinking how our economies are structured. Through a 2-day plenary-based agenda, the Forum will focus on identifying drivers of and solutions for transitioning from a linear economy to a circular economy.

This year, the Forum will seek commitments to scaling the start-ups, innovations and technologies that will drive the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to the circular economy. Five SDGs most directly impacted by circularity will be addressed, those for water, energy, employment, sustainable consumption & production and land & biodiversity.

An audience of next generation leaders in business schools and universities around the world will connect with current leaders from companies, governments, academia and civil society. Together they will explore how circular economy ideas and models could be used to transform businesses, boost future job creation and help societies to achieve the SDGs for 2030.
