Metro Vancouver is pleased to invite you to its fourth annual
Zero Waste Conference

Businesses, governments and communities are stepping up and learning how to thrive in a rapidly changing, resource-constrained world. On September 16, join leaders, emerging innovators and practitioners as we explore new product and systems design, new materials, and new business models that are keeping pace with a new economic landscape – a landscape that is more circular than linear.

  • Engage with a global network of thought leaders, practitioners, and sector leaders advancing dialogue and collaborative action on waste prevention and reduction.
  • Learn about the circular economy, and the resulting business opportunities.
  • Hear about leading edge - and replicable - successes in the public, private and community sector.
  • Participate in opportunities to advance national, cross-sector, collaboration.
