This event explores the financial, social and environmental benefits that are created by adopting Circular Economy practices within organisations.
You will hear about the tools, tips and techniques which others have used to achieve success. You will hear about various case studies demonstrating the significant savings that the Circular Economy and in particular, reuse and repair can generate.
As well as hearing from organisations who have set up their own Circular Economy, reuse and repair mechanisms, you will also hear how organisations are even sharing assets between each other to cut costs, carbon and waste.
Attend this event if you are looking to adopt circular economy practices within your organisation and become more sustainable and resilient.
This event will interest anyone within sustainability, facilities management, waste and procurement in the public, private and 3rd sector.

When & Where
Warp It Reuse Network
We want to make the circular economy mainstream.
When we were speaking to our customers they were asking us "How do we get more circular?". So we thought we would get together with loads of other innovative Circular Economy solutions and tell them how! Everyone's invited.
The following events are aimed at staff within procurement, FM, sustainability, waste, planning, capital development, space and asset management roles within large organisations.
Warp It's mission for the last 15 years has been to make the reuse of assets easy. Warp It has saved organisations over $10 million in avoided waste and procurement charges developing reuse schemes.
"The ultimate vision is where reuse & repair is so convenient and desirable, that organisations do not throw anything away or buy anything new. I want Warp It to be the network for organisations, where buying new is the last resort and nothing is wasted. Where reusable items are redistributed for their 2nd and 3rd useful lives and when the items fail, they are diverted into repair.” Daniel O'Connor Warp It Founder
