The first World Circular Economy Forum in Helsinki was an invitation-only event for 1,500 participants from 90 countries. It demonstrated the commitment to repositioning policies so as to enable a circular economy. We met with OECD, WEF, UNEP, IRP, WBCSD and others to promote remanufacturing as a key component in the circular economy. Nabil Nasr from RIT offered comments on the REMADE study underway in the USA, but it was clear too that more voices are needed to represent the various interests of remanufacturers. Apple’s presentation of their LIAM disassembly robot was a high point. The event proved successful and a second will be held in 2018, with an expected return to Helsinki in 2019.
