I’m thrilled to welcome Elin Bergman to the podcast. Elin has been called the “Circular economy queen of Sweden.’’ In this episode, you will hear how Elin stumbled upon the circular economy and how ever since she has been working to implement the transition to a more circular economy. You’ll find out about how Sweden is moving towards a circular economy and what Elin thinks needs to happen in order to make the transition. You’ll learn about Elin’s most recent initiative, a new international network called ‘The Baltic Stewardship Initiative’ which aims to enable recirculation of nutrients in the region from the agri-food sector.

Elin works as the circular economy expert at WWF Sweden, is one of the initiators of the Nordic Circular Hotspot and is the Vice President and spokesperson of the Swedish circular economy network Cradlenet. Resources and links discussed in this episode are available at gettinginthelooppodcast.com.

Katie’s note: Since this episode was recorded, I have left my role as a Managing Partner of the Nordic Circular Hotspot.
