Join us for our Circular Economy Working Group meetings which are being held on the 4th Wednesday of every month.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, June 27th from 6:00-7:30 pm.   We will be providing information in the near future on the meeting venue.   

We are working to identify circular economy principles and opportunities for implementation in the DMV region (District of Columbia, Maryland, and Northern Virginia).

The Circular Economy Working Group materialized from past Leaders in Energy workshops and activities on the circular economy.  See more information on these below.

Send an email to info@leadersinenergy if you would like to join us for the next CE working group meeting if you are not already on the CE mailing list.

Status Update from our May meeting:

“The Leaders in Energy Circular Economy Working Group had its May meeting on Wednesday the 23rd. Participants finished up discussing an assignment on waste stream solutions and barriers that will guide the group’s co-creation process over the next few months. Summer is gearing up to be a busy time for the working group: on June 27th we will hear a presentation from the Fairfax County Recycling Outreach and Education Coordinator, and conduct a review of and comment on the DC Sustainability 2.0 plan update. Our meeting on July 25th will return to the co-creation process with a presentation and discussion led by the working group chair. Join us! The Circular Economy Working Group meets the fourth Wednesday of each month.”
