Circular Economy and Private Sector Development: Learning Series
How can the private sector help accelerate the world’s transition toward a regenerative and circular economy? During this session, organised by The World Bank, we will discuss critical issues that can inform policymakers and stakeholders within the financial sector. We will explore 1) circular financing needs through the lifecycle of a business where start-ups, SMEs and corporates have different risk profiles and 2) the capabilities and constraints of finance providers such as venture capital capitalists, banks, institutional investors, as well as the role of government.
