Zero Waste Conference 2017
Eliminating waste and creating value are essential pillars in a new way of doing business and developing policy - a new norm of addressing waste in every facet of our lives. And no approach offers greater promise for realizing those goals than the principles of the Circular Economy.
Forward-looking businesses, governments, and consumers are changing their behaviours – viewing every decision through the lens of zero waste and circular economy ambitions. Throughout the economy, examples abound – and we are privileged to witness a massive shift in thought and action.
For the past seven years, Metro Vancouver's Zero Waste Conference has been at the forefront of this journey in Canada – pushing boundaries, advancing dialogue and inspiring action.
The 2017 edition will showcase on a global and local scale how we can:
- reimagine linear systems of production and consumption with waste prevention and the circular economy in mind
- advance organizational change and collaborate across sectors to develop new solutions and approaches
- embrace new ways of thinking, innovation, and disruption to address barriers and intractable problems
- benefit from this emerging opportunity – whether you are a business, government, or community leader
