About us


A global communication platform of the circular bioeconomy – gathering prominent stakeholders in the circular bioeconomy for roundtable talks.


Walking the talk – showcasing biodiversity in practice, with different views on bioeconomy, feedstocks, climate change, bioproducts, policies and versatile interest groups.

The Four-Pillar Structure

The Forum strictly operates under the Four-Pillar Structure:

  1. The Bioeconomy: People, Planet, Policies
  2. Global Leaders and the Financial World
  3. Bioproducts Around Us
  4. Looking to the Future.

Using the Four-Pillar Structure enables the complete evaluation of the status of the circular bioeconomy and thereby facilitates developments across the whole of the sector. This makes the Forum and its activities extremely powerful and effective, enabling the facilitating of a holistic bioeconomy and thus making significant conjoined efforts in the mitigation of climate change.

All Forum programs and activities are aligned with the Four-Pillar Structure, including all Roundtables and the annual Declaration. This four-pillar structure ensures that all relevant stakeholders in the circular bioeconomy have a voice and a platform.


The Bioeconomy in action: The annual Forums are arranged in various locations around the world, focusing on successful circular bioeconomy examples for global awareness. The very first event was arranged in Ruka, northern Finland.


In addition to the annual Forums we arrange online events – World BioEconomy Forum Roundtables. In the Roundtable we focus on one pillar per time.


A chance to shape the future of the evolving Bioeconomy: the opportunity to work together now and take actions to set a wider example on how to deliver a sustainable future.


Each Forum will be ended up with the Declaration. By Declaration World Bioeconomy Forum is speaking to various stakeholders of the sector to enhance progress of the Circular Bioeconomy.
