2017 Circular Economy Summit: From Aspiration to Implementation

Registration is open! Early Bird pricing is available until April 28.

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.

The agenda for the Circular Economy Summit includes pre-summit sessions and a networking reception on June 26. Registration for the pre-summit sessions will be available soon. 

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.  

Register today for this can't-miss event! And make sure to check back for updates such as new featured speakers, discussion topics, and more.
