Read the agenda for the 2024 RSB Innovations Meeting, in partnership with P&G
We are excited to share with you the agenda for the 2024 RSB Innovations Meeting, in partnership with Procter & Gamble (P&G).
The 2024 RSB Innovations Meeting will be a full-day event – taking place on 7th February 2024 in Cincinnati, USA – for regional and global transition leaders to dig into the role of policy in helping the growth of a sustainable biocircular economy and the ways in which positive impacts can be incentivised.
We will explore the interdependence of sectors – from aviation to consumer goods – that are reliant on common raw materials, and how policy developments in one sector can and must become enablers of the bioeconomy as a whole.
See below for a brief overview of what to expect at the 2024 RSB Innovations Meeting:
Explore the significant potential for positive impacts on rural livelihoods and environmental outcomes – if we take a holistic approach to managing social and environmental sustainability – and highlight why we need to talk about agricultural feedstocks as some of the essential building blocks for a just and sustainable bioeconomy.
Looking at the role of policy and standards in unlocking positive impacts for livelihoods and ecosystems, this session aims to grow confidence in the full spectrum of feedstocks that we need to invest in for the bioeconomy.
In this session, we explore the current status of policy to unlock sustainable feedstocks and their supply chains. We will hear from experts from sectors that traditionally do not work together yet whose supply chains will rely on the same feedstock resource base in the transition away from fossil.
This session will give participants the opportunity to feed into RSB’s work on building a cross-sectoral policy perspective, to ensure that policy becomes an enabler rather than a barrier, to the transition.
In this session, we uncover the magic ingredients that are essential to get promising, but currently underdeveloped, feedstocks scaled sustainably.
Breaking out into working groups, we will explore several key feedstock types including those with low iLUC and biodiversity positive impacts, to begin developing strategies to reach sustainable scale.
Finally, we explore the role of global initiatives and civil society in supporting brands and other end users to generate the demand needed to turn sustainable feedstock opportunities into a reality, connecting customers and end users to a range of positive sustainability impacts.
