From sustainable footwear and fashion to transparent supply chains and operations, zero waste products and services have taken the world by storm. Attend this concurrent session to hear from zero wasters tackling inefficient value chains by creating circular products and collectively creating a Zero Waste Economy. We will discuss how Rothy’s has implemented circular shoes into their business model, transparency and accountability in Rheaply’s asset management platform has created a virtual zero waste market, and how product certifications like Cradle to Cradle can push producers to cut down on resource waste and inefficiency.
