Upcoming Events: Closing the Loop on Waste – Beijing & Shanghai

Waste Consumption in China Material Flow Diagram - Collective ResponsibilityFor this month’s Beyond Business As Usual series on “Closing the Loop on Waste”, we have three events in Beijing and Shanghai that will look at how China is managing its growing supply of waste, the implications for business, and some best practices for how firms in the retail and manufacturing sector are closing the loop in China.

To help drive depth of insights into the current systems, as well as some innovative programs, we will be releasing our comprehensive report on Shanghai’s Informal Waste Sector, and have invited executives from leading retailer and materials firms to speak about:

  • How is waste managed, formally and informally, in China?
  • What are the realities of recycling, and what is the business case for circular economy initiatives (e.g. product takeback programs)?
  • How can firms engage their stakeholders in participating in programs, or as brand building?
