When: Wednesday, June 16th, 9:30 – 11:00 AM PT
Where: Online

Join us for the second event in our Clean Materials series. This discussion will examine the role our smallest businesses can play in the emerging clean materials economy. Micro businesses can help drive the transition to a clean economy while expanding equitable opportunity in communities large and small – if given the chance. Join insightful leaders in exploring how this often-overlooked part of our economy can access opportunity and accelerate the promise of clean materials: good jobs, healthier communities, a more sustainable planet and broadly shared prosperity.
