Addressing food waste has been an important subject at every Metro Vancouver Zero Waste Conference. This year’s edition will be no different. With efforts to reduce food waste impacting us everywhere from your home kitchen to the global food chain, how can we reclaim the nutritious food we lose, and build resiliency, a stable economy and a healthy environment? Get an informed perspective on the fight against food waste at #ZWC2016.
By highlighting the economic benefits of a circular economy, Zero Waste Scotland gathered support from government, industry, and the public for their waste reduction efforts. Recently, the organization released a report quantifying the positive impact a circular economy approach could also have on Scotland’s carbon emissions. It shows how the parallel efforts of GHG emission reductions and adoption of a circular economy are mutually supportive. We are pleased to have Zero Waste Scotland’s Chief Executive, Iain Gulland sharing their strategies and successes, as one of #ZWC2015’s panellists for our afternoon session entitled: ‘Eurovision: How Three EU States Enable Circular Economies.’
