Juana Kuramoto, Head of Profonanpe’s Research and Development Office, participated in the round table discussion “How to make it feasible to obtain resources to promote the circular transition”, in which she highlighted the fundamental role of the State and the need for a multisectoral vision to initiate the transition to a circular economy at the national level. She also stressed that this process must consider native and indigenous communities: “If we talk about circular economy, biodiversity and sustainable resource use, we must also talk about local populations, native and peasant populations that need to be included”.

 

On the same day, Profonanpe, together with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) organized the segment “Financial instruments for circular enterprises: advances and successful experiences”. In this space, Anton Willems, CEO of Profonanpe, shared the institution’s experience as a partner in the implementation of sustainable and circular environmental projects. This segment also included the participation of Jose Luis Vilela, Head of BBVA’s Strategic Sustainability Plan; and Ferruccio Santetti, Deputy Regional Director for Latin America and the Caribbean of GGGI.

“We learned that the circular economy, aligned with the sustainability of our projects, gives added value. We seek to promote businesses that integrate three aspects: financial sustainability, social impact and environmental impact,” said Willems.

 

Profonanpe’s participation in the V Forum on Circular Economy allowed for the exchange of experiences with the public and private sectors, academia and civil society to promote and take action for a just transition with a territorial approach towards a circular economy in the country and the region. Profonanpe is also participating in the process of building the Peruvian Platform for a Circular Economy, promoted by the Ministry of the Environment, together with 23 organizations from the public, private, academic and international cooperation sectors.
