SFU Segal Centre, 500 Granville Street, Vancouver
8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
(networking breakfast 8:00 – 8:30 am; dialogue 8:30 – 10:00 am)
Replacing today’s take-make-dispose economy with one that is restorative by design, the circular economy is gaining significant traction globally as a game changing concept that can redefine our relationship with resources and energy while stimulating innovation and job creation. How can businesses benefit from pursuing circular economy approaches? What are the opportunities for businesses, policy makers, and citizens in Canada?
Subject matter experts from Canada and the Netherlands will share ideas on how to scale up circular economy activity in Canada. Hear what is happening in Canada through the National Zero Waste Council. Learn how and why the Netherlands is embracing the circular economy at scale and about circular opportunities in industrial symbiosis and the built environment.
