Resource 2015, London

Resource is the annual three day congress and exhibition with over 11,000 visitors that brings together circular economy exponents. The circular economy represents a fundamental shift for businesses: away from a so called ‘linear’ model where resources are extracted, made into products and disposed of, to a model where products are remade, repaired, resold, or recycled. Rather than being about sustainability, it’s about good business and exploring the opportunities to resource recovery and circular economy business models. This is exactly where Cradle to Cradle is about: a practice oriented concept that makes the circular economy reality. Prof. Dr. Braungart will discuss the C2C business case for organisations to invest in progressing towards new models and the effectiveness of product standards. Language: English.

05.03.2015

9th Industriebau Forum, Darmstadt

The Industriebau Forum is the annual industry gathering which focuses on the exchange of knowledge between investors, research, development, design and craft. Prof. Dr. Michael Braungart presents here how suitable Cradle to Cradle for industrial construction is. Nature is for Cradle to Cradle a source of inspiration that shows how we can make things better. The clever systems and the beautiful materials our nature offers, as well as the needs and well-being of people are important aspects during the implementation of C2C in buildings. For too long, the industrial construction has forgotten the human and aesthetic touch - it's time to bring those back again.
