We also had two guest speakers. The first one was Katarina Urošević, chief of staff and director of communications at HTEC Group – a global consulting, software engineering, and digital product development company. Founded in 2008 in Belgrade, and today has its global headquarters in San Francisco, with offices in Silicon Valley, New York, and London and across Central and Southeast Europe.

The second guest speaker was Zoran Pavlović, independent consultant at Prudent Capital. His main focus is consulting in the area of sustainability, investments, project financing within renewables and real estate, banking, and company development.

The webinar aimed to emphasize the importance and need for transition from linear economic and industrial model to circular, one that stands for efficient use of resources and raw materials, recycling and reuse of waste. The benefits of the circular economy are saved natural resources, meaning preserved environment, reduced impact on climate change and more innovative products. Significant initial investments in research, development and monitoring are needed in order to successfully establish a circular economy system.

Through three sessions, this important topic was presented from a legal perspective, from the perspective of a company that really operates in accordance with the principles of sustainability at the global level, as well as from analytical perspective – through the presentation of the results of research of companies and their awareness on sustainability.
