Closing the Circularity Gap

– How innovation can help your business do more with less

91% of extracted resources are still not reused or recycled today, which poses a challenge for us, as a society, as well as for our organizations. Closing the Circularity Gap requires us to shift from optimizing for return on single assets on the balance sheet to optimizing for return on resources in combinations and over time. Join us in a webinar to share our knowledge on how innovation drives sustainable growth and profit with a better return on investment over time. 

The webinar will be led by Magnus Penker, a global strategist and innovation management thought leader at Innovation360, and by Johan Persson, a director and expert in scenario planning, sustainability, commercialization, and portfolio management at Innovation360.

Time: 9 am EST, January 26, 2021
