The traditional “take, make, waste” linear economy model is the standard for most businesses. However, this way of doing business is becoming increasingly unsustainable as a surging global middle class spikes demand for already stressed natural resources. For companies that rely heavily on raw materials the risks are real: reduced access to materials, increased costs, and supply chain disruptions, to name a few.

Join us as we illustrate how leading companies, such as Interface, are proactively making the shift to a circular economy model and how by doing so are not only reducing waste but also growing their bottom line.
