Towards Net-Zero: Strengthening NSW Businesses in the Transition to a Circular Economy

Towards Net-Zero: Strengthening NSW Businesses in the Transition to a Circular Economy

Jul 19, 2023

The paradigm shift that the circular economy presents is commanding businesses and individuals to rethink waste and pollution, adopt innovative practices, and transition away from traditional processes that inhibit economic performance.

Creating a circular business model is challenging. To remain competitive, companies are looking for opportunities to adopt circular economy business solutions to reduce industrial and consumer waste, to circulate products or materials, and to recapture waste as a valuable resource.

Businesses and individuals considering their own capabilities, resources, and constraints, in order to transition to circular practices, will have a unique opportunity to join a host of circular economy specialists in Western Sydney on 22 August 2023.

Regional Development Australia Sydney and Penrith City Council have partnered to deliver an extensive and engaging 4-hour workshop for anyone active in the construction and building value chain, and who may be looking to upskill on what practical circular economy solutions look like.

Panel discussions and presentations will be delivered by experts from Circular Australia, NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), Department of Regional NSW, Urban Development Institute of Australia (NSW), Coreo, SaveBoard, Western Parkland City Authority and Penrith City Council.

Key topics and panel discussions include:

  • Circular Economy Frameworks
  • Waste mitigation strategies
  • Incentives for businesses
  • Innovative solutions
  • The Coreo Success Story
  • Data driven solutions
  • The business case: issues of scale
  • Circular economy case studies
  • Collaborations and Partnerships.

Business and industry professionals working in the building/construction industry, government, property development, transport, consulting, supply and manufacturing, and construction management are invited to attend. Other stakeholders interested in connecting are also welcome.

This is a free event to be held at St Mary’s Rugby League Club on Tuesday 22 August 9.30am – 2.30pm.
