About this Event
With the increased interest and momentum in Circularity, GreenTech, and Sustainability, there’s no better time than now to build off of this with a roundtable discussion of founders of the new technologies and innovative business models driving the change.
- Are you a tech founder with a technology that serves the circular economy?
- Are you a founder with a Green Tech solution?
- Are you a founder with a techonology that addresses sustainability challenges of our society?
- Are you part of an organization that supports startups working in this realm?
Well, grab your lunch and join us for discussion with other founders and ATDC leaders on Sept 10th at 12:30pm.
To see where you fit in, below are some clarifications around each term:
What is Circularity?
Eliminate waste + maximize use of resources
Circularity focuses on creating a “closed loop system” by designing out waste and pollution at the onset of product design, and keeping products and materials in use as productive resources to be used time and time again instead of disposing of them.
What is Green Tech?
Green Tech are technologies designed to help mitigate, and even reverse, human impact on the environment. The goal of green tech is to protect the environment, repair damage done to the environment in the past, conserve natural resources and preserve the Earth’s natural resources. These technologies are generally focused on improving operational performance in manufacturing or to the product itself, while also reducing costs, energy consumption, waste, and other negative effects on the environment.
What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is focused on reducing the demand on resources—natural, social, and economic resources—so that we avoid depleting the resources necessary for future generations to meet their needs and maintain ecological balance. In other words, “How do we meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs?”
