How Business Leaders Drive Change: Leading the Way on ‘Circularity’ from Within

Circular City Week event HOSTED BY MEBL | TRANSFORMING FURNITURE, SUSTAINABLE FURNISHINGS COUNCIL, AMERICAN SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS NETWORK

    

How do business leaders drive change from within toward greater ‘circularity’ in corporate practices? What strategies do they use to transform their companies along the production- and life-cycles of their products and services – from design, sourcing, manufacturing and sales to use, reuse, recycling, and/or end-of-life? How do companies make the case for circularity to key internal stakeholders and align the full range of teams – finance, product, sustainability, marketing, operations, etc – to achieve sustainability, waste and business goals? Is it best to “go all in” or “take baby steps”? The hosts will explore change from within using examples from the furniture and consumer products industries to illustrate strategies applicable across many sectors.
