“Circular Economy Showcase: Canada Circular Hotspot 2024”

Guelph, Ontario | 24th until 27th of June 2024

The Canada Circular Hotspot organised the “Circular Economy Showcase 2024”: a conference that offers attendees a unique opportunity to explore the benefits of circular economy practices. The event is designed to provide valuable insights into enhancing business processes, improving overall business strategies, and reducing costs through the implementation of circular economy initiatives.

This event is the first North American edition in the series of circular hotspot events, and will take place in one of the Canadian cities that has been recognised for its efforts on Circular Economy. The theme of the Canada Hotspot is the role of business in the Circular Economy, and during the event participants will be able to drive efficiencies, achieve cost reduction, and adopt ESG sustainable practices that are essential for long-term success. Delve into best practices that focus on efficiency, innovation, and transforming waste into profit. Embrace the green revolution and be a part of the movement towards a more sustainable future.


What are circular economies?

A circular economy endeavours to enhance the value and minimise waste by enhancing the designs of materials, products, systems, and business models.

The strategies of a circular economy entail:

  1. Designing products that are durable, reusable, and recyclable, aiming to minimise their disposal.
  2. Decreasing the reliance on virgin materials and non-renewable resources, while promoting the use of renewable resources and recycled materials.
  3. Transitioning from a mindset of “waste management” to one of “resource recovery”, where all items have value and no waste is sent to landfills.
  4. Shifting away from linear supply chains, which result in disposable products, towards circular supply chains, which prioritise ongoing services (such as product-as-a-service).
  5. Significantly diminishing the adverse environmental effects associated with economic development (e.g., pollution) through methods like achieving carbon neutrality, using non-toxic materials, and adopting other environmentally friendly practices.


The program will feature Canadian and European business leaders who are already implementing successful circular economy practices. Attendees will have the chance to learn from these industry experts and gain practical knowledge that can be applied to their own organisations.
