National Zero Waste Council at Globe 2014

Speech or Presentation / 1:41:31 / National Zero Waste Council Members

Waste generation – ranging from food to packaging and beyond – is one of Canada's leading economic and environmental challenges facing cities across the country. A Special Session at Globe 2014 offers a thought-provoking discussion on how businesses and governments in Canada, the UK and other countries are addressing concerns over waste, the difficulties in moving a waste prevention and circular economy agenda forward, and the many creative and bold opportunities on the horizon. Canada's National Zero Waste Council is a leadership initiative bringing together individuals and organizations in government, businesses, industry and the community sector who innovate, inspire, demonstrate best practices, or advance a waste prevention agenda in Canada by encouraging design and behavior change. March 28, 2014.
