National Zero Waste Council Workshop at GLOBE 2016
Industrial Revolution 4.0 - How waste prevention can boost the bottom line and drive circular economy innovation
DATE: Friday March 4 2016, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
LOCATION: Vancouver Convention Center East, Room 11 (meeting room level)
Preventing waste is one of humanity’s most urgent issues, but also a powerful lever for change – with significant benefits for businesses, governments and citizens striving to boost sustainability and achieve ambitious climate goals. By convening coalitions of problem-solvers – policy-makers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, inventors and designers – and rethinking our products and processes with waste prevention in mind, we can scale up innovative solutions in pursuit of a circular economy where materials and resources are kept in use for as long as possible and concepts such as durability, disassembly and sharing really count.
Join Canada's National Zero Waste Council to hear how waste prevention can power innovation and a reinvigorated economy in Canada and beyond.
- How can waste prevention fuel innovation towards the circular economies? What are the opportunities and challenges?
- What innovations are needed to design waste out of our products and systems?
- How can we support a culture of zero-waste innovation and entrepreneurship in Canada?
- What solutions are scalable and how? What is the job creation potential?
