The circular economy Meetup is for companies and decision makers within them charged making their organizations more sustainable and more specifically tasked to reduce material and energy leakage in their biological or technical supply chains through the implementation of the Circular Economic model. http://www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org

Ideal members of the group would include Chief Sustainability Officers, Continuous Improvement Teams, Supply Chain Managers, Six Sigma practitioners, etc. Additionally any organization involved in developing new technologies or processes to help organizations improve their process flows, recover materials, or regenerate them would be equally well suited to the Meetup. Public sector and government agencies tasked with Green Economy initiatives and promoting circular economic like programs would also be welcome contributors to the group.

Members of the Meetup can expect to learn about the adoption of the circular economic model and ways their organizations can implement the model. Members could expect to connect and network with other similarly challenged decision makers from other organizations. There will also be real opportunities for organizations to find the necessary partners and/or third party providers to implement their circular economic model initiatives. 

The goal of the circular economy Meetup is to create a community of connected colleagues who can help each other better understand the circular economic model and make more informed decisions based on that knowledge for their organizations. Typical activities will include sharing information about where and how the U.S. the circular economy is being adopted. Actual case studies of circular economy implementations will be presented for discussion. Panel discussions and Q&A sessions that bring together the public and private sectors to discuss ways to work together will also be a regular part of the agenda. Members will be encouraged to share their experiences and to make introductions among each other to facilitate the successful use of the circular economic model. Lastly, the meet up will look for ways to promote the circular economic model to the wider public will be explored.

As the circular economic model is well regarded and increasingly woven into sustainability programs and policies in Europe, the model is still in its infancy here in the U.S. As Boston and the state of Massachusetts is known for promoting innovation across a wide number of industries, it makes  Cambridge venue an ideal location for educating organizations about the circular economy and its benefits.
