Circularity isn’t just another sustainability framework — it’s a radically different way of doing business. It’s an emerging business strategy that enables companies and organizations to innovate in ways that address resource scarcity and climate risk, respond to consumer and societal pressure to reduce waste, and unlock a $4.5 trillion economic opportunity.
The circular economy is transformational, disruptive, regenerative and will create opportunities at every part of the economic spectrum. It requires engaging with a company’s entire value chain, even with competitors and companies outside of one’s sector.
However, it is still early days. There is a lack of awareness about the circular economy and many myths and misunderstandings about how to finance it, the impact of the policy environment and how more companies and cities can seize the moment.
Circularity 19 is the largest circular economy event in North America. The event will bring together more than 500 thought leaders and practitioners to accelerate the circular economy opportunity. Through inspirational plenaries, interactive breakouts, networking opportunities and a solutions-focused showcase, Circularity 19 will inspire, inform and empower participants to turn circular economy concepts into profitable opportunities for companies and cities.
