How Can Entrepreneurs Enable Arizona’s Transition to a Circular Economy?

Strategies to achieve a circular economy often overlook the contributions of smaller, locally led enterprises and the need for market-based solutions. Entrepreneurship has often been identified as one of the drivers of sustainable economic growth and entrepreneurs are helping to drive and shape innovation by creating or bringing life to new technologies, products, and services, building new markets and jobs along the way. Entrepreneurs will be crucial to Arizona’s transition to circularity. Join this session for insights into entrepreneurs already leading the way and how they are tackling some of the state’s biggest waste issues.
