Event description

Description

This event will combine our biannual waste special interest group with a site tour of the fantastic WWF Living Planet Centre, which is not only an exemplar of low-carbon office design but was largely built using recycled materials. Our waste special interest groups meet to discuss a range of topics on effective waste management - including contracts, staff engagement, materials & recycling, and supply chains. Members will be given the opportunity to have an open discussion on waste topics with other members within our network along with a tour of the Living Planet Centre.

Our wonderful host… WWF Living Planet Centre couldn’t be a more perfect space to host our meeting. WWF have committed to remove all avoidable single-use plastic by 2020 in their products, operations and supply chain. They are working internally with staff and externally with suppliers to raise awareness of what single-use plastics are and their impact on the planet, as well as finding alternative products to allow them to remove it from their operations. And that’s not all...

- Their food waste from the building is sent to an anaerobic digester which produces biogas to generate electricity and residual waste to be used as fertiliser.

- Their goal is not to send any waste to landfill. Their current recycling rate is over 75% and anything that can’t be recycled or composted is sent for incineration/energy generation.
