The circular economy as a strategic lever: a new webinar featuring interviews with industry experts

Enel has organized a series of webinars to explain the contribution of the circular economy model to the energy transition, while safeguarding biodiversity and the environment.


A series of webinars dedicated to exploring the issue of the circular economy. Enel has arranged a series interviews with experts and representatives of the private sector on the theme of the circular economy as a strategic lever for promoting the energy transition.

The webinars focus on “A sustainable future: biodiversity and its relationship with the circular economy.” Biodiversity with its innumerable forms of life present in the environment: the variety of animals, plants, fungi and even microorganisms such as bacteria that make up our natural world. In order to maintain a balance and sustain life it is essential to preserve it.

This is where the circular economy comes into play. With its fundamental principles, it can have a positive impact on different areas and sectors, including the environment and its direct effect on biodiversity, and on the products created by a circular process. This encourages less use of raw materials and soil, resulting in a drastic reduction in emission levels. Together, we will address these issues and learn how to protect biodiversity, thanks to a circular economy model that guarantees the recovery of the affected areas through the elimination of waste and the reuse of materials.

The webinars feature leading experts, such as Tim Forslund, a Circular Economy Specialist at SITRA (the Finnish innovation agency) and world reference on the subject, and Gian Paolo Daguer Guarin, Head of Sustainability at Enel Colombia.

Gian Paolo Daguer, for example, talks about the relationship of the circular economy with biodiversity, and the Enel Biodiversa initiative, which was developed in Colombia and Central America.

“The goal is to protect, conserve and restore ecosystems in the areas where we do business. We have been developing biodiversity projects for over 15 years. In particular, Enel Biodiversa follows four key principles: i) the integration of biodiversity conservation and the shared value creation model, for example in the places where we support production projects like the cocoa supply chain or ecotourism initiatives; ii) the protection, conservation and restoration of ecosystems; iii) the introduction of technologies that can help reduce the impact of our business on biodiversity; and iv) sharing knowledge and raising awareness about these activities.“
