Circular Cowichan: Business Opportunities in the Circular Economy
Sep 21 at 10:00am - 11:15amFree
Business leaders are invited to join us on Tuesday, September 21 from 10 – 11:15 am PST for a free virtual workshop, Circular Cowichan: Business Opportunities in the Circular Economy.
Our world is only 8.6% circular. This means that of all the products, materials, and resources in existence, only a small percentage is re-entering the economy. All other waste is either landfilled, incinerated, or left to breakdown in our waterways or on our land.
The circular economy offers significant opportunities for businesses in all sectors to reduce their environmental impact and create green jobs for the future.
Join us as we take a deep dive into the circular economy and identify specific opportunities for businesses within the Cowichan Region.
This interactive workshop will cover:
* Brief overview of the circular economy
* Case studies of local businesses who have implemented circular principals
* Assessing your business’s circular opportunities through discussion and worksheets, including how to:
– Assess current materials flows
– Identify circular solutions
– Create your action plan, set meaningful targets, and track your progress
