It’s clear that companies need to respond the increased pressure to reduce waste in a world that is rapidly running out of resources. At Circularity 19, more than 500 leaders and practitioners will meet to discuss, define and increase the impact of the circular economy. There will be six tracks at the conference: Business Strategy & Innovation, Circular Cities, Design & Materials, Logistics & Infrastructure, Next-Gen Packaging and Standards & Metrics. Registration is open!
It may be getting chilly, but all the more reason to make plans to head to sunny Phoenix from February 26–28 for GreenBiz19.

As a regular attendee put it, “GreenBiz is such a great platform for sustainability. Our team attends every year, because it’s a fantastic source of inspiration and an opportunity for problem solving.” Who can say no to that? The “best” rate is good until November 14 and the “fall” rate expires December 14. Don’t wait too long to make your plans!

If there is one video you should watch this month about climate change, it’s the closing segment of the Green Biz 2016 conference. Speaker James Hansen, the former chief climatologist at NASA and a climate change expert, calls out pretty much everyone by pointing out how government inaction, as he sees it, is limiting progress on climate change.
So, if Paris is a “fraud,” then what will actually help combat climate change? Don’t worry, Hansen has the answer.
Like TEDTalks, we love hearing from the world’s best and brightest. This year’s SXSW conference in March had some interesting forums on niche sustainability issues – like diversity in the sustainability field and greening the Super Bowl – but SXSW Eco is where the conference organizers devote an entire three-day conference on environmental and sustainability issues.
Have you attended a worthwhile conference that we should put on our radar? Let us know in the comments!
