Natural resource constraints and global environmental risks are challenging the traditional linear economy—where companies "take, make, waste." Some companies are facing pressure from customers and suppliers to adjust their business models based on circular economy concepts: a way of doing business that aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible, and in which products and materials are recovered and regenerated at the end of their service life. For many companies, this adjustment signifies a daunting business model transformation. Join us as we illustrate how leading companies are managing the challenges and opportunities of the circular economy.

Who Should Attend: Business executives with responsibility for sustainability programs and initiatives, and/or executives with responsibility for strategic planning, marketing, and product innovation.
