Christopher Wellise, Chief Sustainability Officer, HPE, to join #RBSWEST in October [9-10]

Increasing pressure on natural resources is forcing companies to take a lifecycle analysis approach from as early on as product development. But the increased pressure and the lack of national leadership provides a unique opportunity for business to innovate and collaborate to close the loop. How can your company take the lead and showcase the commercial benefits of circularity?

Delivering this transition from a linear to a circular economy is one of the biggest challenges the industry faces, reducing waste is of paramount importance to ensuring the safety of the planet. HPE is taking a complete lifecycle approach that yields financial and environmental savings at scale and aims to drive a more efficient use of energy and materials.

Circularity is a huge component of The Responsible Business Summit West [San Diego, October 9-10] and we’re excited to have Chris, Chief Sustainability Officer at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, join our circularity keynote, discussing HPE’s lifecycle approach.

The two-day forum focuses on how business can lead the change to a clean, inclusive future through collaboration, innovation and investment. Innovators and experts confirmed to join Chris include:

• Assistant Secretary-General, UN Environment
