Sustainable Supply Chains: The Circular Economy Solution

HOST: Supply Chain Manitobas

LOCATION: Zoom webinar

The circular economy is gaining worldwide recognition as a remodeling of our current “take-make-waste” system into one that circulates resources by sharing, reducing, reusing, repairing, remanufacturing, upcycling, and recycling. With so many applications of the circular economy throughout the supply chain, it can be tough to know where to start or even how to reimagine a new way of operating.

Join Tim Reeve live on Tuesday, September 20th at 11 am CDT for the first of a series of webinars on what the circular economy is and how it applies to SME supply chains.
