Complimentary Webinar

Embracing Circular Economy to Drive Business Value Part II
A Case Study Deep Dive

Wednesday, December 7, 2016
9am-10am Pacific Time


In our October 26th webinar we briefly covered some examples demonstrating circular economy. The audience was very engaged on the topic and asked many detailed questions. We ran out of time to go into more detail so we, in partnership with Sustainable Brands are bringing you a second webinar to dig deeper into actual examples of circular models. We’ll cover LCA as a tool for circular as well as examples from the packaging and building products industries.

In this second webinar we won’t be covering the theories behind Circular Economy. You may want to review our first webinar for that. This webinar will focus on actual examples from business of Circular Economy in action.

What You Will Learn:

  • Understand how LCA can inform next steps in the development of circular models.
  • See, in more detail, examples of how Circular Economy principles have been applied and integrated into companies to bring value to their organizations.
  • Key considerations for embracing circular into packaging scenarios.
