Implementing Zero Waste on Campuses and in Businesses, 9/24

9am-11am PST / 12-2pm EST

Adopting a formal Zero Waste goal and action plan is a watershed moment for a large organization’s waste reduction program. They mark the point where a university, corporate or other type of large institution sets a course moving beyond a simple waste management program toward a sustainable materials management system rooted in the circular economy.  Of course goals and a plan are just the starting point. The next challenge is to implement them.

This webinar will feature a panel of speakers from universities and corporations at different stages of implementing Zero Waste plans. The program will start with an introduction to each institution’s planning to date, followed by a roundtable discussion on the various challenges and opportunities each has faced along the way.
