Advancing a Waste Prevention and Reduction Agenda in Canada







The National Zero Waste Council (NZWC), in collaboration with Metro Vancouver and GLOBE 2014, invites you to a Special Session at the Globe 2014 International Forum on Business and the Environment in Vancouver. To attend this free workshop, please register here for a Trade Fair Pass (choose “Buy Trade Fair Pass” and use Registration Code – visitzero – to waive fees).

Waste generation – ranging from food to packaging and beyond – is one of Canada’s leading economic and environmental challenges facing cities and communities across the country. Canada’s National Zero Waste Council is a new cross-sectoral leadership initiative tackling this challenge head on, driving forward a national waste prevention and reduction agenda by encouraging design and behavior change.

The Special Session at Globe offers an inside look at the Council; its activities since launching in October 2013, and a thought-provoking discussion on how businesses and governments in Canada, the UK and beyond are addressing concerns over waste; why, and when they see change happening; what the difficulties are in moving a waste prevention and circular economy agenda forward; and what creative and bold opportunities are upcoming that will help garner big wins in securing a world without waste.

Moderated by CBC’s Marketplace Host, Erica Johnson, speakers include:
Jamie Butterworth, Chief Executive, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, United Kingdom
Shelley Carroll, Councillor, City of Toronto, & Director, National Zero Waste Council
Michael Goeres, Executive Director, Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment
Nathalie St-Pierre, Vice President – Sustainability and Quebec, Retail Council of Canada

Your registration provides access to other Globe 2014 activities the afternoon of Friday, March 28, including the GLOBE Town Hall Meeting and Spotlight on Dubai.
