About this Event

WASTE: The opportunities

Date and time: Wednesday 26th June, 9-11.30am

Venue: Blackfriars’ Priory, Gloucester

The launch will kick off the series looking at an environmental issue currently prominent in the news (partly thanks to David Attenborough) – waste. Yes, we need to be reducing the amount we produce, but ‘waste’ also offers potential business opportunities through turning it into new resources and feeding into the circular economy. Why waste waste?

The event starts at 9am and the programme is:

9am - Welcome and all attendees have 15 secs to introduce themselves

9.25-10 - Coffee/tea and networking

10 - 10.30 - Dr Peter Maddox, director of national waste organisation, WRAP, outlines the Government's Resources & Waste Strategy

10.30 - 11 - Practical session: start to identify and plan ways to reduce your company's waste courtesy of the 'How to...' workshop.

11 - 11.30 - Questions to Peter Maddox and David Trevelyan about waste reduction

11.30 - End of meeting

Profits, people and planet – the triple bottom line: consumers support it with their purchasing power; more and more companies demand it from their supply chain. And now the Government has committed to a zero carbon economy by 2050. But how do companies adopt this new agenda whilst also turning it into a business advantage to future-proof themselves?

Gloucestershire Green Circle is a new forum offering businesses practical advice, up-to-date information, support and networking: all around sustainability and green growth. If your company wants:

  • advice about greener ways of operating (to optimise its existing green operations)
  • add momentum to an inclusive and sustainable economy
  • more customers for its greener products and services

…come along to Gloucestershire Green Circle meetings to share, learn, network and be inspired as part of growing a greener economy for the county.
