What exactly is the circular economy, and where is it at in Australia today? Is circular economy the answer to our current supply chain issues in Australia? And what’s the future of circular economy as we transition to a Net Zero carbon emissions future?

James and Rachael take a deep dive into these and other questions and come up with surprising and refreshing insights.

Rachael challenges some of the current business thinking on circular economy, contends there is an urgency for action, and challenges James to join the journey, not just comment from the sidelines. It’s a lively and interesting conversation:

From her ‘day job’ as the Advisor – Industry Development and Policy for Ai Group Rachael has a unique viewpoint of the emerging circular economy in Australia. Amongst a host of responsibilities, she coordinates Ai Group’s involvement in the well-respected ‘Product Stewardship Centre of Excellence’.
