Reimagining the Linear Economy, presented by Olin Net Impact

Thursday, November 9, 2023 | 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Knight Hall, 330
Knight Hall and Bauer Hall, John M. Olin School of Business

The modern global economy starts with resource extraction and ends in waste - it is linear. To ensure a more sustainable future, we must shift toward a circular economy where products are designed for circularity.

This panel event introduces students and the community to paradigm-shifting ideas around circular economy. This event will explore ways of fundamentally changing how the global economy is designed for sustainability and will help business leaders of today and tomorrow to think beyond “reduce, reuse, recycle.”  How can circularity inform the need for the global economy to be reimagined?

Net Impact is a graduate student club based out of Olin Business School and is committed to inspiring and equipping emerging leaders to build a more just and sustainable world. This event is in collaboration with Boeing Center for Supply Chain Innovation, Olin Supply Chain & Operations Association, and Bayer Net Impact.

Reception to follow the panel. Space limited; RSVP requested: bit.ly/ONI-reimagine
