Resource 2015 will see Resource Futures chairing a key conference session to explore the role of manufacturers in the circular economy.
On the 3-5 March this year, ExCel in London, will be hosting Resource 2015. As sponsors of the event, Resource Futures is undertaking a leading role by chairing a key conference session dedicated to that often under-looked element of the circular economy – manufacturing.
With an internationally audience, Resource is the first event to bring together the complete supply chain in the closed loop economy. The event provides delegates with the chance to learn how others are innovating and to find out about new strategies for a circular economy from leading experts.
Take placing at 11.45 on Thursday 5 March, the Resource Futures conference session, ‘Manufacturing approaches to resource efficiency and circular economy models’, will be a great opportunity to explore the challenges and opportunities that arise for manufacturers as they seek to close the materials loop whilst maintaining the all important commercial edge. In particular, the panel session will pay attention to the role of data in providing solutions to the problem of sourcing secondary materials.
The session is chaired by our Operations Director, Sam Reeve, who is joined by Matthew Rowland-Jones, European Sustainability Manager at Rexam and David Cornish, Global Sustainability Manager at AkzoNobel who are providing two different perspectives on manufacturing.
Resource Futures will also be hosting an interactive workshop on Wednesday 4 March, which will offer insight into the development of a six point plan for getting started on the circular economy that can be implemented in the workplace.
