National Zero Waste Council

Canada united in the achievement of zero waste, now and for future generations

2017
AGM
November 2, 2017
The National Zero Waste Council's 2017 AGM took place November 2 in Vancouver. Open to all Council Members and Supporters, the AGM included a report out on the Council's 2017 activities followed by a Member Forum featuring global leaders and breakout discussions around food waste, product design & packaging, construction, renovation & demolition waste and the circular economy. A presentation and background materials of the days proceedings are available here.

Bringing together organizations to advance waste prevention in Canada.

A collaborative approach involving governments, businesses and NGOs is essential because governments in Canada have limited leverage to change the design of products or packaging in a global market. To be successful, we need to adopt a national approach, involving governments, businesses and NGOs, to align with global best practices in design change and policy innovation that will prevent waste and facilitate a transition to circular economies. And while design change is essential, so is behaviour change – among consumers and across supply chains.
