On May 16 and 17, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center, in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and PXYERA Global will host the 6th annual Sustainability Forum in Washington, DC. Better Business, Better World: Mainstreaming the Circular Economy will convene thought leaders and practitioners from business, government, academia, nonprofit organizations and other stakeholder groups to explore opportunities and best practices for unlocking the value of the circular economy, and accelerating scalable solutions across global supply chains.
The circular economy, marked by creative innovations and a systems-level approach, can be used to tackle many of the world's most complex environmental and social challenges. Building on our 2015 conference The Circular Economy: Unleashing New Business Value, companies and other stakeholders will come together to identify practical approaches for implementing the circular economy from a design, process, service, and product perspective.
We will explore in depth the role and practical application of circular economy business models and disruptive innovation technologies, such as big data analytics, 3D printing, and biomimicry.
We will also illustrate how companies can apply circular economy thinking and principles to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and create positive global impact. And we will examine tangible ways business can support and leverage some of the key circular economy enablers, such as employee engagement, natural capital, and financing infrastructure.
This inspiring, action-oriented event attracts hundreds of the most influential leaders and thinkers from private and public sectors to explore the concepts, strategies and solutions that are redefining the role of business in society to help make the world a better place.
