Destructive consumer industries threaten our planet, meanwhile, circular and sustainable solutions are shifting the status quo. The consumer industry has thrived on a take, make, and waste economy that has pushed our planetary boundaries to the limit, and this panel will explore a wide range of sustainable solutions including topics around the circular economy, supply chains, and trends in consumer behaviours.
We’ll speak to experts who are using technology to develop novel materials, advanced manufacturing practices, and enhanced supply chain logistics to build a more regenerative economy. There is enormous potential to be unlocked this decade through sustainable consumer technology solutions and this is an opportunity to hear from local industry experts on how they are tackling these global challenges and creating profits too!
