Optimizing the Circular Economy through Natural Capital Accounting

Jul 20, 2016

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center, in partnership with Tetra Pak Inc., hosted a webinar on the role of natural capital and renewable resources as a key enabler of achieving a circular economy. 

The circular economy is a restorative or regenerative economic model in which resources are endlessly cycled back into supply chains and waste does not exist. The circular economy represents tremendous opportunity for business; shifting to the circular economy could unlock an additional $4.5 trillion in economic growth by 2030, according to research from Accenture.

The webinar will provide a platform to explore the economics and the business case of valuing natural capital, with a particular focus on renewable resources. Speakers will also offer tangible examples of integrating natural capital and renewability principles into business strategy and decision making that enables a more circular economy.

A recording of the webinar is available here, and the presentation can be downloaded here.
