Speaker Series: Rubicon’s Michael Allegretti to Speak at Inaugural Circular Economy Symposium at Harvard

WHO:

Michael Allegretti, Chief Strategy Officer at Rubicon (Twitter, Blog)

WHAT:

Our current economic models are geared towards linear consumption: Resources and disposal are cheap enough to make short product lifetimes and a throw-away culture the most profitable business model. Nonetheless, an ever growing number of businesses aim to redefine growth and success in sustainability terms. How far along is the transition, and what are the bottlenecks that prevent more rapid transformation?

Moderated by Etienne Kechichian (Senior Private Sector Specialist at World Bank Group), Michael Allegretti will join Anna Meegan (Head of Sustainability at Google), Dr. Michael Saltzberg (Global Business Director at Dupont Materials), and Jose Manuel Moller (CEO and Founder of Algramo) to discuss how private companies active in various sectors of the value chain can play a role in bringing about increased product circularity on a systemic and global level.
