LODH partner to drive a circular economy

Lombard Odier and the Enterprise for Society Center have announced a research partnership with a focus on the transition to a circular economy.

Lombard and E4S will develop research on the transition towards a circular economy, identifying societal challenges and the alignment of companies and investments and aims at defining the way the adoption of circular business models can accelerate these environmental transitions.

LODH says its offering is built around its conviction that the economy must transition from one that is wasteful, idle, lopsided and dirty to one that is more Circular, Lean, Inclusive and Clean (CLIC®), involving transitions across energy systems, land and oceans, the way we use materials, and the way adverse environmental impacts are priced into the economy and into business models.

E4S is a joint venture between the University of Lausanne, IMD and EPFL, with a mission to inspire and activate the transition to a resilient and inclusive economy within planetary boundaries, mindful of the opportunities and challenges raised by scientific and technological change.
