Cost: FREE for Members, $49 for Non-Members

With current and upcoming resource constraints, plus society's growing disapproval of "disposable" products, it's time to design and offer products to leverage existing resources and keep them in the economy after use. This webinar will walk participants along the path from the make-and-waste Linear Economy to the use-and-reuse Circular Economy.

The Circular Economy sounds good financially and environmentally, but how does one actually transform an industry from the Linear to the Circular Economy? This webinar will provide specific ways of implementing Circular Economy design and business practices at manufacturing companies, with examples from the tech industry that will inspire all industries.

Attend and find out:

  • Critical enablers and barriers to thriving in the Circular Economy
  • How manufacturers can engage in the dialogue with suppliers and customers
  • What to expect from the regulatory framework surrounding the Circular Economy.
  • How to gain support from executives in making this critical and comprehensive change

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today. At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
