Why the waste and resources sector is vital to delivering NetZero

The Studio, 67 Hope Street, Glasgow G2 6AE, United Kingdom
From 10h00 to 11h30
  • The impact industrialisation has had on our planet has been catastrophic: we can clearly see the damage caused as fires, floods and famine plague our societies. In the face of the devastation caused and with the knowledge that carbon emissions are the source; we simply cannot continue in the same vein. Now is the time to put meaningful, deliverable and practical solutions into practice.

     

    Through reducing the resource intensity of our operations, every organisation and individual around the world can work to reduce carbon emissions. And, as we collectively reduce, reuse and recycle, we can begin to lower the resources required to sustain human life and move further towards a circular economy where only minimal natural resources would be required.

     

    Focusing on the how the resources sector must support, advise and guide other sectors in their materials use, John Scanlon, CEO for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK, delivers a keynote presentation as he explores the progress made by the waste and resources sector to date, and looks ahead to the immediate- and medium-term actions required by the sector and all those who interact with it.

     

    Panel discussions featuring speakers from across multiple sectors follow the keynote speaker presentation as we seek to understand the realities of changing how our economy operates in search of a more sustainable future.
