Our mission is to drive legislation for serious environmental issues by bridging the communication gap between policymakers, corporations and municipalities.

This event is a forum for policy makers and companies of all sizes to share best practices in moving from a linear economy to a circular economy while generating higher economic returns.

Our Challenge

The world is facing stark limits to resources, and companies are under pressure to reduce waste and create new products and services.

To address these challenges, the circular economy has emerged as a transformational business strategy focused on designing and manufacturing products and materials that have continuous and infinite lifecycles — and it is a $4.5 trillion business opportunity.

Join key opinion leaders and entrepreneurs in finding solutions for our most pressing challenge!
