Description

EVENT PARTNERSHIP:

EDGE ENVIRONMENT with the SUPPLY CHAIN SUSTAINABILITY SCHOOL

Registration from 7.30am for an 8.00am start - event ends by 10.00am.

Although continued development is placing ever-growing demands upon global resources, NSW may be a step closer to the creation of a more circular economy following the launch of its draft Circular Economy Policy last year. But does our industry understand what a 'circular economy' really means, what are the challenges and opportunities faced as our business modules change, and how can Australia’s construction and infrastructure sector learn, adapt and flourish?

Come along to this FREE interactive event for property, construction and infrastructure professionals - particularly those in procurement, sustainability and project management roles - and:

  • Discover the antidote to the current 'linear economy' where we make things, use them and throw them away
  • Understand what a 'circular economy' is and how to apply the principles
  • Hear about how better materials choices make for better buildings and infrastructure
  • Find out what materials are seeing the biggest changes through processes, technology and innovation
  • Hear how Australia's recycling practices are changing, and what needs to change yet further
  • Understand how a circular economy isn't just up to you, but how it must involve supply chain collaboration
  • Deep-dive into some case studies of circular economy models around the world
  • Question the panel about the circular economy, materials, products, recycling and waste.

We will hear from:

Robin Mellon, Chief Executive Officer, Supply Chain Sustainability School

Jonas Bengtsson, Chief Executive Officer, Edge Environment (School Partner)

Dr Kar Mei Tang, Executive Director, NSW Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

David Hodge, Managing Director, Plastic Forests

Belinda Chellingworth, Environment & Waste Officer, The GPT Group

Andrew Hogben, Procurement Manager, Mirvac Construction (School Partner)
