On May 6 & 7, 2015, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, in partnership with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, will host the 2015 Sustainability Forum. The event joins influential leaders and thinkers, from different business, government and nonprofit organizations from around the world, to explore the impact of the circular economy on businesses. William McDonough will be delivering the closing keynote, ending day 1 of the event. Through a series of insightful keynotes, panel discussions, and interactive workshops, the forum will also be an opportunity for participants to examine current business strategies and how to achieve greater cost savings as well as advances in Cradle to Cradle® inspired design.
In a recent discussion with Joel Makower of GreenBiz, part of the The McDonough Conversations series, McDonough reveals circular economy as one of the major themes of the 2015 World Economic Forum in Davos. Cradle to Cradle® and circular economy have gradually become mainstream after several years.
