Circular City Week - Opening Ceremony
Time & Location
About the event
Kick start your week with exploring how circular economy can lead to wholly new ways of creating economic value, as well as opportunities to deliver against key public priorities.
Join us and all our partners, for what will be an insightful opening of Circular City Week New York. Interactive and inspirational talks from our Pioneer Partners will showcase the various routes corporates can take to contribute to a circular future. There is no time to waste and corporates are finding original ways to be positive forces of change in their respective sector.
In this opening session we are going to discuss the innovative strategies and initiatives corporates are taking in order to be part of the movement towards circularity. For some that means taking a new look at internal process and product design, for others this entails being an accelerator for other corporates to make chances, and in other cases this entails being an enabler and information partner.
