Circumcenter is a series of stimulating dialogues circling around the circular economy. It is not a million-dollar question, perhaps, but by asking, "What's in your center?", Circumcenter unleashes people's intentions who created, designed, or triggered circular systems in industries from textile to food from architecture to packaging.

E9: What is the brewing and beverage industry doing for the circular economy? 🟣 Can Çaka, Anadolu Efes 🟣 Circumcenter
We talked with Can Çaka, the CEO and President of Anadolu Efes Beer Group, which operates in six countries and 27 facilities.   Anadolu Efes is committed to achieving net zero emissions across all its operations by 2030. To achieve this goal, they also collaborate with startups and have a larger goal to enable circularity within the company.   Beer is the fifth most consumed beverage after tea, carbonated drinks, milk and coffee. As a result, the food and beverage industry is responsible for more than 17 billion tonnes of CO2, about one-third of total global emissions.    This number is almost 19 times bigger than what the aviation industry causes. So maybe we should also consider what we eat and drink daily besides occasionally cutting down air travel.   Can Çaka explains how Anadolu Efes is transforming into a circular economy and the role of the brewing and beverage industry in achieving sustainability?  We hope this conversation inspires you to start your circularity journey today.  Subscribe to our Youtube channel and hit the bell button not to miss the future dialogues with passionate leaders in the circular economy. 🔔 Learn more at https://circumcenter.world 📮 For sponsorship & collaborations: biz@pakt.agency DISCLAIMER The information used in this podcast is provided by our guest speaker and is assumed to be in the public domain or all rights reserved by our guest speaker without any confrontation of any third-party rights.

E6: How can we prevent packaging waste through a circular economy? 🟡 Jonne Hellgren, RePack 🟡 Circumcenter
We talked with Jonne Hellgren, the founder of RePack, a global reusable packaging service trusted by more than 200 companies that can be conveniently and quickly returned and re-used. Jonne explains circularity in the packaging industry.  Because 17% of all waste produced globally is paper and cardboard. This is the second-largest polluter after food and biological waste. And, 12% of all worldwide waste fully or partially comprises plastic packaging. Packaging waste poses a serious threat to our environment and is slowly getting more public attention. But is it enough? What can brands and businesses do to adopt circular packaging principles? We hope this conversation inspires you to start your circularity journey today.
