The purpose of the event is to speed the adoption of Circular Economy practices within organisations by demonstrating initiatives which are already delivering benefits.
You will hear about the tools, tips and techniques which others have used to achieve success.
You will hear from organisations who either facilitate or have integrated, delivered and/or set up their own circular mechanisms.
Attend this event if you are looking to adopt Circular Economy practices and will interest anyone within leadership, sustainability, facilities management, waste and procurement in the public, private and 3rd sector.
If you cannot make this event register anyway and we will send speaker presentations.

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
