Registration now open! Join us for the Sixth Annual Sustainability and Circular Economy Summit on August 5-6 in Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is proud to be collaborating with National Geographic Society for its sixth annual Sustainability and Circular Economy Summit, which will convene a diverse group of decision-makers from across sectors to address critical challenges within the circular economy transition, recycling and recovery optimization, and climate action. The program will take place on August 5-6 at National Geographic Society headquarters (1600 M Street NW) in Washington, D.C. 

As we move into a critical decade for action in corporate sustainability, speakers and participants will explore key strategies and tactics needed to execute priorities and deliver meaningful social, economic and environmental impact. 

The agenda will feature interactive sessions and actionable insights on how to: 

  • Leverage cross-industry collaborations; 
  • Deploy cutting-edge technologies and practices to accomplish sustainability goals; 
  • Accelerate economic growth and job creation through circularity and sustainability;
  • Effectively measure and communicate progress to stakeholders and customers, and more.

We will build on the Chamber Foundation’s exploration throughout the year of topics such as circular procurement, clean energy, sustainable transportation, and climate smart agriculture. 

Attendees will have unparalleled learning and networking opportunities with hundreds of thought leaders from business, government, academia, and nonprofit organizations on the same journey.
