A Roadmap for Best of Class Circular Partnerships How can companies navigate internal and external roadblocks in order to unlock circular advancement? Fueled by consumer activism and investor demand, the transition from a linear to a circular economy is disrupting how the private sector conventionally positions its sustainability agenda. Traditionally siloed in a company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR), the infusion of circular economy into sustainability has provided companies a platform to unlock financial value and demonstrate ROI, while appealing to a broad range of diverse stakeholders. For many companies however, the rapid shift to a circular platform is causing tension in how a company prioritizes, partners and communicates sustainability and circular economy initiatives both internally and externally. To ensure that companies are aligned on their sustainability, shared value and philanthropic initiatives, this discussion will address: How to identify and overcome internal barriers that prohibit progress on circular economy goals. Insights into the internal silos around sustainability/corporate responsibility that exist in the corporate space that stifle innovation, grow distrust and potentially can cause financial harm to the company. Best practices on integrating circular economy initiatives into the corporate ecosystem to drive internal alignment, innovation and external partnerships. Internal corporate value chain biases (Finance, Sustainability, CSR and Corporate Foundation) How to build successful corporate and nonprofit circular partnerships.

If you’re sick of snails and slugs making a meal out of your garden, but also can’t fathom poisoning those slimy little guys, then GreenerGreenGrass ‘ Slug Shield could be the natural deterrent you’ve been looking for. The Slug Shield uses coiled copper to repel slugs and snails both physically and electrochemically, without adding toxins to the environment or killing them off. By wrapping a Slug Shield around the base of plants, pots, and greenhouse table legs, you can repel slugs year-round. And unlike copper tape, the Slug Shield expands with plant growth so the product only needs to be applied one time and does not damage stalks. The shield works on a variety of plants, including citrus trees, orchids, dahlias, hostas, and a broad range of vegetables . + GreenerGreenGrass The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
