Beyond Zero Waste

May 9, 2014 @ 7:30 am - 12:30 pm

Zero waste initiatives are becoming more common, but how this ambitious goal is defined can vary widely – from a focus on smarter disposal to a broad, life cycle-oriented approach. In this session, you’ll hear about local and global companies that are moving toward “zero” by looking upstream, rethinking product design, and re-imagining their approach to waste. Networking and discussion with a cross-sector group of sustainability professionals and topic experts will help you look at your company’s waste in a new light and bring tangible takeaways back to your workplace.

Confirmed speakers include:
• Thaddeus Owen, Chief Engineer Sustainability, Herman Miller
• Robert Strand, Assistant Professor of Leadership & Sustainability, Copenhagen Business School
• Heather Tansey, Sustainability Business Development Manager, 3M
