Circularity Linkage with Manufacturing

HOST: CME Manitoba & Supply Chain Manitoba

LOCATION: CME Office, 200-1479 Buffalo Pl, Winnipeg, MB

Circular Economy, Circularity, Supply Chain

Are You Ready to Embark on a Transformative Journey into Sustainable Manufacturing?

The traditional supply chain moves in a linear motion – when supply diminishes, new supply is procured to be stored, distributed, and consumed. But – what if we could remove waste, limit rework, and refocus on maximizing our existing resources? The circular supply chain model answers this question.

Join our workshop to discover the basics of circular economies, how they seamlessly integrate into manufacturing, and gain insights from real-life examples. You will also learn to assess your operations for circularity and understand its relationship with sustainability requirements.

This session is focused on small to medium sized companies.  As circularity requires enterprise-level consideration, this session will benefit decision-makers, process owners and internal champions within all levels and functions of a company.
