Finding circular solutions means working throughout the value chain to find opportunities for waste reduction or reuse of materials to prevent new waste and actively decrease the volume of unused material. With case studies from leading manufacturers and interactive problem-solving, this session is designed to both share existing solutions and inspire new ones through material reduction, reuse and end-of-life solutions by participants.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn about the impacts of material waste streams on humans and the environment
  2. Delve into case studies of leading manufacturers implementing circular solutions at their company
  3. Explore barriers to implementation of circular solutions and how they have been overcome
  4. Identify easily-implementable solutions at your own company, and longer-term ideals for moving towards a circular model

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1.25 LFA credits
  • 1.25 AIA LU|HSW credits
