Global Leadership Program on the Circular Economy (2019)

This unique practitioner’s program will give business and government leaders the practical skills to make a difference in the circular economy. You will see how to put theory into practice and translate concepts into tangible actions. The diversity of the program’s themes is grounded in visits to a range of circular economy operations – all within close proximity to each other in and around the city of Adelaide. Adelaide, South Australia, is increasingly recognised as a leader in circular economy initiatives. This leadership program provides the chance to see these first-hand, develop your knowledge and deepen your understanding based on proven successes. More than 84% of the state’s waste is diverted from landfill. 57% of the state’s entire energy consumption is met by renewable energy and completion of current projects will increase this to 75% by 2021. It is one of the most water efficient regions in the world, recycling nearly 40GL of wastewater and urban stormwater per year. This figure is set to exceed 50GL per year in 2019 after the commissioning of current infrastructure projects. South Australia is a hub for the circular economy where the government, industry, community, research and education sector actively collaborate. We are uniquely positioned to demonstrate the circular principles in the areas of recycling and resource recovery; water management; climate change; smart cities; innovation and renewable energy. There is nowhere else where you can see the circular economy in practice and concentrated in one conveniently located geographic metropolitan location.
