Free Webinar: Thriving in a Circular Economy

Date:  September 30, 2020

11:00 a.m. to Noon Central

The Value and Opportunities of a Circular Economy on Capital Projects

A recent Fast Company survey of American companies found that more than 60% are currently moving toward circularity in their operations, and another 16% are already utilizing circular principles in their planning and operations. CII has commissioned a new project, RT-380, The Value and Opportunities of a Circular Economy on Capital Projects. This team will address the question: What opportunities, value propositions, and key business models are driving a circular economy in capital projects?

In this webinar, the academics from RT-380 will introduce the concept of the Circular Economy and share how other companies around the globe are already adopting circularity in their business processes. Two CII industry members will also discuss the potential benefits of the Circular Economy for capital projects.

RT-380 will kick off this fall. This webinar also gives CII members an opportunity to learn how to engage in this research project as team members.
