02/25: Innovation-X RoundTable – The Circular Economy and Sustainable Supply Chains

February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In the past 20 years, our society has become increasingly accessible— in the span of a day, a person can travel across the world, simultaneously, if you prefer staying home, you can have everything from groceries to clothing delivered directly to you in the span of a few days. However, with these incredible innovations, our amount of waste and greenhouse gas emissions have dramatically increased—putting our future at risk. Our upcoming Innovation-X roundtable will pose the question: What will it take to transform our “take-make-waste” consumption model to an economy regenerative by design? Through the event, our speakers will share their thoughts on creating systems that continually repurposes everything, with a special focus on plastic and the role technology will play in ensuring our economy works for people, profits, and the planet.
