The Business of Zero Waste

Posted by Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia on January 29, 2018

Best Practice Forums are a series of workshops from SBN that use member case studies to create meaningful opportunities to learn, connect, and build a better business. The next program in the series will discuss a variety of perspectives of how to build a Zero Waste Business. Register

9:30 AM — 11:30 AM

1901 Vine St, Philadelphia, PA 19103

Waste is not solely an environmental issue but a matter of social and economic concern as well.

You are invited to hear from several businesses whose business model is reducing the waste stream and who are incorporating zero waste practices.

Joining our panel of representatives from the local business community is Nic Esposito, Zero Waste and Litter Cabinet Director, who will share how local businesses can support the city’s bold Zero Waste goal.

Attendees will be part of a conversation that addresses both the impact and business case of Zero Waste.

As a follow-up to our conversation, we are hosting a free Best for PHL Challenge workshop directly after the forum from 11:30AM-1:00 PM where attendees are invited to start measuring their impact in this area as well as their larger social, environmental, and economic impact. Whether you are taking it for the first time or updating your assessment for the new year, we invite you to take this free, online assessment that encourages, supports and recognizes companies in the Philadelphia region that commit themselves to creating positive impact.
