Industrial Revolution 4.0: How Waste Prevention Can Boost the Bottom Line and Drive Circular Economy Innovation

Date: Friday, March 4

Location: Vancouver Convention Centre East, Meeting Room 11

Format: Workshop

Preventing waste is one of humanity’s most urgent issues, but also a powerful lever for change – with significant benefits for businesses, governments and citizens striving to boost sustainability and achieve ambitious climate goals.  By convening coalitions of problem-solvers – policy-makers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, inventors and designers –  and rethinking our products and processes with waste prevention in mind, we can scale up innovative solutions in pursuit of a circular economy where materials and resources are kept in use for as long as possible and concepts such as durability, disassembly and sharing really count.
