Aikena Orolbaeva works as an Analyst in the Circular Economy programme at adelphi. She works on sustainable consumption and production in textile and agro-industrial supply chains. Aikena has experience in the primary stages of value chain development and climate change adaptation. The circular economy, as an emerging economic system, provides an opportunity to sustain humanity and its consumption while reducing human impacts on climate and the environment.
"Working in the programme allows me to contribute to a better sustainable future through various important aspects, such as guiding the implementation of circular economy principles in the strategies of different stakeholders, starting with production. In addition, integrating the circular economy contributes to other objectives, such as gender equality, environmental and economic justice, and creating new economic opportunities."
