Newcastle > The Circular Economy for organisations
Wednesday, 12 August 2015 from 10:00 to 14:00 (IST)
This event explores the financial, social and environmental benefits that are created by the reuse and repair of assets within organisations.
This free event will show you how to set up or improve reuse and repair systems within your organisation.
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 reuse and repair can generate.
As well as hearing from organisations who have set up their own reuse and repair mechanisms, you will also hear how organisations are 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 who has set up a reuse system in their organisation as well as sustainability, facilities management, waste and procurement managers in the public, private and 3rd sector.
The event is also a great opportunity for those organisations who use warp-it.co.uk, to get to know each other to increase intra and inter organisational asset redistribution.

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
