Zero Waste: Innovations to Drive the Circular Economy
8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Room 1200 Segal Graduate School of Business SFU’s Vancouver campus 500 Granville St
Waste management presents increasingly significant challenges to Metro Vancouver and much of the world.SFU has responded to the challenges by developing some successful models for waste management. Now we have begun to explore systems for going beyond diversion that tackle sources of waste before they need to be managed. In doing so we’re ready to drive closed loop systems that support the Circular Economy. Innovations in product and packaging design, in purchasing practices, and in materials collection are critical to this shift and to developing effective approaches and tools that meet communities’ diverse needs.
Join us at this event where experts will lead a dialogue on how to foster a climate for zero waste innovation in Metro Vancouver.
