As China’s economy has shifted from the world’s factory to the world’s mall, the issue of waste has become a growing public debate. As Chinese cities struggle to keep up with the growing amount of waste, it is clear that China’s waste problem has become an issue that cannot be neglected, particularly for the industries and brands that are being linked to these wastes.
The European Chamber is delighted to invite Richard Brubaker, founder of Collective Responsibility, to speak about their recent research on Shanghai’s informal waste system and how they work with individuals and companies on waste reduction.
During this lunch and learn session, participants will gain a greater understanding of China’s waste problem, including:
- How waste is managed, formally and informally, in China.
- The realities of recycling, and the the business case for circular economy initiatives (e.g. product takeback programs).
- How firms engage their stakeholders internally and externally in participating in programs and building a brand.
- The best practices for individuals to start leading a waste free lifestyle in China.
