What People are Saying about the GC3 Innovators Roundtable:

Mike Elder, Novozymes:
“If you want to be where emerging technologies and industry needs meet, the GC3 Roundtable is the place to be.”

Kevin Delaney, Costco:
"GC3 brings together organizations across supply chains, and different organizational areas (company, academic, NGO, and government), to provide wider perspective to any individual involved. There are collaborations that one learns about, or can develop, by participating with the GC3 that won't be found in any other context. These collaborations provide value to one's organization."

Kris Weigal, Resinate Materials Group:
“Every year I extract more and more value from the GC3 Roundtable. The networking with both large and small companies increases. Everyone has a genuine interest in collaborating and seeing each other succeed. It is a great opportunity to share best practices.”

Ann Blake, Environmental & Public Health Consulting:
“The GC3 provides a forum like no other to discuss both visionary goals and the practical challenges in moving our economy to safer chemicals and materials. Being able to engage the entire supply chain in one space is incredibly productive and provides insights one cannot obtain in any other forum.”
