Managing Risk Through Circular Economy

HOST: World Trade Centre Winnipeg

LOCATION: Virtual Webinar

Circular Economy, Circularity, Supply Chain

Building more sustainable supply chains.

From local business to public agencies, a circular economy is increasingly viewed as the linchpin to managing costs and environmental concerns. Supply chain management practices play a critical role in a circularity.

Supply chain professionals are often the first to recognize material security risks, inefficiencies, and opportunities to reduce material consumption. They understand and connect with local value chains to identify and create valuable supplier partnerships which contribute to an organization’s efforts to move towards circularity.

Attendees will learn:

  • Learn the basics of what is a circular economy and circularity.
  • Circularity in the Manitoba Supply Chain Context.
  • Tools and information for small & midsize enterprises.
