Save to Calendar 2019-11-12 11:30:00 2019-11-12 13:00:00 Business Beyond Borders: Circular Economy The Greater Houston Partnership invites you to our next Business Beyond Borders Go Beyond program on Tuesday, November 12 focusing on the Circular Economy.  The circular economy concept looks beyond the consumption of finite resources like the current take-make-waste or the use-once-and-discard approach and instead designs a way to remove waste and pollution out of the system. It keeps products and materials constantly cycled back through the value chain for reuse, resulting in lower energy and resource consumption. Thomas Hundertmark, Senior Partner at McKinsey in Houston will speak on the circular economy concept, what initiatives Houston’s global companies are taking and the potential impact that transitioning to a circular economy has for global businesses. In his co-authored article, “No time to waste: What plastics recycling could offer,” he sheds light on the potential for chemical industry players to build new kinds of profitable businesses, which if all factors aligned, could represent a profit pool of $55 billion per year by 2030. Tickets prices increase October 11. Register early! No refunds for cancellations after November 6, 2019.
