Next edition, September 16th – What goes around comes around: the importance of circular business models

Many companies have the ambition to be climate neutral by 2050, but is that enough?
To save our planet, it’s no longer a want, but a need to go more, if not fully, circular. Some businesses play part in destroying the planet while other businesses are working around the clock to build a better, more sustainable tomorrow.

One of the businesses that closes the loop with their circular business model is Protix: the company of Kees Aarts that brings the food system back in balance with nature. In this session of BMI• Inspires we will have Kees Aarts as our guest, accompanied by BMI• expert Roland Wijnen and led by John van Schagen.


4.00 PM   Session starts + introduction
4.10 PM   “What goes around comes around: the importance of circular business models” – conversation with Kees Aarts (Protix) and Roland Wijnen (BMI•) led by John van Schagen 
4.45 PM   Q&A
