The Circular Economy-Unlocking the Value in Redefining our Relationship to “Waste”
Gina Lee, Circular CoLab
$1.8 TRILLION. This is the value that McKinsey says adopting Circular Economy practices can create in just the EU alone. (While lowering GHG's by 83% to boot!) But what is the Circular Economy? And what does moving away from our linear take-make-waste model mean in practice? Attend this panel to hear from leading Circular Economy practitioners and social entrepreneurs to transform the way we design products, utilize technology, and think about waste. Together let’s invest in a truly sustainable economic model that is no longer tied to continued resource use and environmental degradation.
