Waste not, want not. It’s the circular economy. How can you ensure a circular economy model is good for your business as well as the planet?

Is your organization going round in circles? If not, why not? The circular economy is more than just a buzzword. It’s a doctrine for a sustainable future, and one that more and more businesses are adopting.

Join Capgemini’s Courtney Holm and Lindsey Mazza, along with special guest Jon Khoo from Interface, as they explore circularity and its role in safeguarding the planet with show host Liz Lugnier.
