Join us for the Fifth Annual Sustainability and Circular Economy Summit on August 15 and 16 in Washington, DC.

Join hundreds of sustainability and circular economy professionals at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Fifth Annual Sustainability and Circular Economy Summit August 15-16 in Washington, D.C. This year’s Summit will convene a diverse group of decision-makers from across sectors to educate one another on replicable, successful initiatives and benchmark strategies for impact through 2030 and beyond. 

The agenda will feature insights on how to form innovative cross-industry collaborations; execute on upcoming sustainability commitments; and anticipate and address the next frontier of sustainability issues. Speakers will go beyond the “what” of sustainability programs and priorities to explain the “how” behind implementing such initiatives within an organization. Attendees will have unparalleled networking opportunities with thought leaders from business, government, academia, and nonprofit organizations.

Join us in August to gain the knowledge and skills needed to most effectively execute sustainability and circular economy priorities, together with peers on the same journey.
