Paul Hagen Speaking at ELI Seminar on the Circular Economy
Principal Paul Hagen (Washington, DC) will be speak as a panel member in a seminar hosted by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) titled "Circular Economy: Extracting Value through New Business Models and Technologies," which will take place on January 24 from 12:00-1:30 p.m. in Washington, DC.
The seminar is part of ELI's 50th Anniversary Seminar series and will discuss the many facets, obstacles, and benefits of fostering a circular economy. Expert panelists include corporate leaders who are actively engaged in adopting the principles of circular economy, focusing on innovations in technology and business models/practices, and their potential to transform traditional systems of production and consumption. There are hundreds of solutions-focused initiatives collectively fostering a circular economy in the U.S. and beyond. From re-purposing flexible plastic packaging to closed-loop nutrient recycling and waste to energy solutions, new technologies and business models are emerging, yet one must examine whether these are economically viable and find opportunities to expand their use.
