At NAEM's upcoming EHS Management Forum in Austin, renowned architect William McDonough will describe how his breakthrough design concepts can advance the development of a new, circular economy. We spoke to him this week to learn more about 'cradle to cradle' design and how these ideas can be incorporated into everyday business decisions.
The circular economy aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract maximum value of these resources while in use, and recover and regenerate materials and products at the end of each life cycle. In this session panelists will highlight the benefits of the circular economy, and the scalable technologies, innovations, and processes that companies are employing to achieve zero waste and beyond.
