Attracting investors: the power of circular impact – A WCEF2024 accelerator session

Join the Circular Investment Readiness Network on April 17th from 8.30 to 10.00 to discover how to leverage impact measurement to attract investors

Despite their potential to reduce carbon emissions and waste while enhancing economic resilience, circular economy projects often struggle to develop compelling business cases to secure funding. This session, organised by the Circular Investment Readiness Network (CIRN), delves into how circular projects can leverage impact measurement practices and alignment with EU regulations to attract investments.

You can participate online or in Brussels at ICLEI's office, Rue du Luxembourg 19-21.
