The NSW Division presents the second instalment in our Innovation Series: Why the Circular Economy is important to you.
The circular economy is set to transform the way we design, use and reuse products and services. With implications in every facet of our life from our daily laundry habits through to the way we service our clients, understanding what the circular economy means to you and your work is crucial.
Join us to hear from a diverse range of panelists on how they have been contributing to the circular economy through business to business industrial ecology, mining waste and resources, to redesigning business models.
The panel discussion will present an opportunity to generate ideas and develop your journey towards a circular economy.
