On Tuesday, October 11, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will host the 2022 Sustainability and Circular Economy Summit in Washington, D.C. This event will convene corporate responsibility professionals, government leaders, academics, and sustainability changemakers to learn and educate one another on replicable, successful sustainability and circular economy initiatives.

The COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing global conflicts, and supply chain disruptions have upended business models and shifted priorities for all sectors. Despite these challenges, the business community has the opportunity to meet this unprecedented moment and leverage the power of the private sector to develop solutions that are more equitable, resilient, and sustainable.

This year's conference will feature top leaders to discuss how companies are navigating these uncertain times, cutting-edge strategies for achieving sustainability goals, and how to leverage collaboration and innovation to channel emerging trends into lasting systemic change.

Register now to join us on October 11 in Washington, D.C.
