NBIS at GoGreen
Join NBIS at our afternoon session “Businesses Applying Principles of Green Chemistry and Engineering to Inform Sustainable Building and Product Design!”
Mary Rose, Co-Executive Director of NBIS, will introduce speakers from Northwest Green Chemistry and Tidal Vision USA for a discussion on how the principles of Green Chemistry and Engineering form the basis for building and product designers to ensure that products used in materials are safe, can flow in a circular economy and have a beneficial impact on natural resources.
Hear from inspiring companies about how they incorporate these principles into their visions in product development and design, and learn about available resources for including these principles in your company’s design process.
