Zero Waste Conference 2018 (Nov. 8 – 9)    Thu Nov 8 to Fri Nov 9, 2018, Vancouver, BC

ZWC 2018 - A global shift is underway. It's called the Circular Economy. The goal? A new way of doing business and developing policy that closes the loop on waste.

This year we’ll be exploring how Canadian businesses, communities, and governments are embracing and accelerating their transition to this new model, with topics such as:

• Materials and Design Innovation
• Business Model Transformation
• Technology Innovations
• Plastics Innovation
• Food Loss and Waste

The circular economy is a transformative idea with great promise. But understanding the complexities of this shift demands a solid grasp of the key concepts that underpin zero waste thinking. You need to know which strategies and tactics are having the biggest impact in your sector. Come to ZWC 2018 to find those answers.

The national Zero Waste Conference (ZWC) attracts thought leaders from around the world highlighting the successes, pitfalls, and opportunities they see – as the shift to a circular economy gains momentum.

Now in its eighth year, ZWC 2018 continues to build on our well-earned reputation for compelling speakers, unique perspectives, and valuable business insights.
