A New Economic Model Focused on a Profitable and Sustainable Future
July 19, 2022
The transition from a linear to circular economy is the most significant restructuring of global commerce since the industrial revolution. It is a completely new system of how products are designed, manufactured, sold, refurbished and recycled into new products. The transition will provide a framework for global corporations and start ups alike to reduce costs, increase efficiency and protect the environment we share. Learn how a unique business partnership is leading the way and breaking new ground by offering several types of funding strategies for circular projects and effecting research, analysis and pre-competitive collaborations to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. And literally see two examples of circularity in action that utilize innovative localized material recovery facilities (MRF’s) whose model is designed to empower communities and independent haulers.
