Disruptive Materials: World-first Material Innovations & Authentic Circularity in Action

About this event

Disruptive Materials: World-first Material Innovations & Authentic Circularity in Action - surfaces, ceilings, lighting and facades.

A circular economy is not bending the linear take-make-waste model into a cyclical model. Authentic circularity starts with safe ingredients and innovative, sustainable material processes that genuinely disrupt linear manufacturing models.

In this webinar, we hear from game-changing pioneers who profile what world-class, material innovations and circular business cases look like through showcasing world-first material innovations, from lighting to tiles, glass to paint, showcasing the very best of authentic sustainability through best-in-class, sustainably certified innovative materials.
