Working Group

Adopting a more sustainable approach to design and circularity is a highly effective means of reducing your company’s downstream impact

How can businesses best address ESG impacts in their downstream value chain? While there are several options at companies' disposal, Sustainability Leaders’ members generally report that a more sustainable approach to design and circularity is the most effective means of making progress. Broadly defined as incorporating ESG and circular outcomes into the design of products and services, a robust approach can have a transformative effect on a business’s ESG footprint. 

This working group will explore the ways that businesses can develop sustainable design and circularity principles, implement them, and most effectively reduce their downstream value chain ESG impacts. Participants can expect to learn about these strategies, the products and services they have helped deliver, and details of their positive outcomes.
