Business Delegation Tour: The Circular Economy in Action
A shift from the take-make-waste model to the innovative circular economy model is essential for our planet and our future. It can also serve as an opportunity for companies to create new revenue streams and address resource constraint risks. However, taking the vision of a circular economy, in which everything is reused and nothing is wasted, and translating that into tangible business best practices can be challenging.
This is why, five years ago, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation started organizing annual business delegation tours, to inspire new ideas and profitable actions that companies can take to eliminate waste by design and achieve a circular economy. We invite you to join us!
This unique invitation-only event brings together business leaders and other industry experts to explore circular opportunities that help decouple economic growth from resource constraints while driving growth, performance, competitiveness, and innovation.
Through hands-on tours of organizations implementing circular strategies and interactive peer-to-peer discussion and networking, attendees are inspired and equipped with clear insights and specific opportunities on which their organizations can capitalize to bring circular solutions to scale.
This tour offers unique access to decision makers with the necessary purchasing power and authority to accelerate the circular economy transition. Previous tours in the U.S. have included participation from JetBlue Airways, Citi, Colgate-Palmolive, Danish Cleantech Hub, Microsoft, Mondelez International, Philips, Subaru, Tetra Pak, Veolia, and Walgreens Boots Alliance.
2019 Amsterdam tour invitees will include AB InBev, AT&T, BD, Campbell Soup, Cisco, Dow Chemical, DSM, DuPont, FedEx, General Mills, Guardian Life Insurance, Kohler, Kroger, Marriott International, McDonald’s, Philips, Rabobank, Steelcase, United Airlines, Walmart, Whirlpool, and many others as well as invited circular economy leaders from across Amsterdam.
