May 6: McDonough to keynote at U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s 2015 Sustainability Forum
On May 6 & 7, 2015, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, in partnership with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, will host the 2015 Sustainability Forum. The event joins influential leaders and thinkers, from different business, government and nonprofit organizations from around the world, to explore the impact of the circular economy on businesses. Through a series of insightful keynotes, panel discussions, and interactive workshops, the forum will also be an opportunity for participants to examine current business strategies and how to achieve greater cost savings as well as advances in Cradle to Cradle® inspired design.
William McDonough will be delivering the closing keynote, ending day 1 of the event. At the World Economic Forum last month in Davos, McDonough sat down with Joel Makower of GreenBiz, to discuss the trending topics of this year’s forum, part of the The McDonough Conversations series. McDonough revealed circular economy to be one of the major themes discussed at Davos. Cradle to Cradle® and circular economy have gradually become mainstream after several years.
