October 12, 2017 - Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) Knowledge Session

Procurement: Advancing the Circular Economy Through Buying Power Beyond Policy and into Practice 12 October 2017 Toronto, ON

RCO is hosting a one-day event to help stakeholders better understand, support, and accelerate the transition from a linear model of take-make-dispose to a circular economy. Specifically, RCO wants to demonstrate how organizations can leverage concepts into supply chains and procurement policies to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions. It has been established that commercial relationships can provide a direct and sustainable way to shift markets to require product designers and service providers to innovate and meet environmental requirements. Most importantly, governments at all levels as well as businesses have unrestricted abilities to support and advance circular economy models and principles through purchasing and procurement.

The RCO welcomes members of allied associations and is happy to extend their members rate to anyone from the MWA who should wish to attend. Please visit the following website for details RCO or call 416 657.2797 x4
