The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center (CCC) and Ecova hosted CCC’s first business delegation tour that brought to life cutting edge solutions to eradicate waste using proven circular economy principles and programs. 

The circular economy is an industrial model that is restorative or regenerative by design and intent, in which products, components, materials are kept at their highest value at all times. The circular economy is a system geared towards designing out waste; it focuses on re-using, repairing, refurbishing and recycling products and materials, turning waste into a resource, and managing all resources through their life cycles.

The tour brought together forward-thinking businesses and other industry experts to observe and learn best practices that unlock the value of the circular economy, and accelerate scalable solutions across global supply chains.
