The circular economy--an economic model focused on designing and manufacturing products, components and materials for reuse, remanufacturing and recycling--promises big opportunities for companies to drive growth, innovation and competitiveness. However, the making the transition from the traditional linear model to implementing circular economy principles can be challenging. This summit, now in its 3rd year, will help participants identify practical steps and actions they can take to translate circular economy theory into business best practices.
Through inspiring keynotes presentations, interactive small group discussions, hands-on workshops and toolkit exercises, and unparalleled networking opportunities, participants will learn not just what but how companies are applying circular economy thinking within their organizations and throughout their value chains.
Session topics will include:
- New business models and practices
- Systems design principles
- Process and material innovation
- Supply chain innovation
- Transformative partnerships
- Measurement and communications
This unique event attracts hundreds of private and public sector circular economy and sustainability thought leaders and practitioners. Join us to learn, share, network and collaborate to turn circular economy aspiration into action that can drive greater resource productivity improvements, accelerate innovation and performance, eliminate waste and inefficiency, and contribute to a stronger competitive economy.
