Fighting Food Waste: Lessons from COVID   What emerging strategies have been employed to tackle food waste during the pandemic, and how can we scale these strategies in the future? When the coronavirus pandemic first disrupted food supply chains earlier this year, huge amounts of animals and produce raised for human consumption were lost. But the food system sprang into action — adapting operations, overcoming barriers and scaling promising innovations to reduce the amount of waste. In this discussion, industry experts who have been leading efforts to tackle food waste during the pandemic share what they have learned. Hear innovative thinking about scaling food-waste technologies, building more resilient donation systems and developing new supply chains that connect farmers with food recovery channels.

Leveraging Design for Circular Momentum

Leveraging Design for Circular Momentum   How can you advance circularity within your team and throughout your company by championing designers and their process? Design decisions have ripple effects throughout a product’s lifecycle and beyond, affecting production, use and end of life management. In this way, designers and creators hold tremendous influence on material flows throughout the supply chain, determining whether materials end up as waste and pollution, or remain in the economy providing value. As the idea of a circular economy becomes increasingly mainstream, how can we support people making decisions that shape materials, products and business models? Where are these professionals found within your business? What role do they play, and how can you empower them in the context of your circular economy ambition? This discussion is led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, alongside practitioners and thought-leaders at the frontier of circular design. Speakers Joe Iles, Editor in Chief of Circulate, Ellen MacArthur Foundation Zoé Bezpalko, Sustainability Strategy Manager, Autodesk Holly Secon Mon, 09/14/2020 – 14:11 Featured Off

Comments Off on Mathy Stanislaus, World Resource Institute, on how to accelarate the circular economy

Mathy Stanislaus is a circular economy fellow at the World Resource Institute, and he’s developing a new platform to encourage organizations to adopt the circular economy. There are some major barriers preventing the adoption of the new business model — from typical trade flows to material resource extraction to political will — so creating a platform to bring consumers,  suppliers  and national players together will spur action.
