Carbon 613 Waste Audit Workshop
22 February 2017, 7:30am – 9:30am
Performance Court, 150 Elgin Street
The Province of Ontario’s Strategy for a Waste-Free Ontario: Building the Circular Economy aims to divert more waste from landfills, create jobs and help fight climate change. With the relevant legislation about to be finalized, now is a great opportunity for businesses to reduce their carbon footprint through ambitious recycling schemes.
Led by Angie McMurray of McMurray Environmental and hosted by Morguard’s Performance Court, this Carbon 613 workshop will provide small-to-medium sized businesses with guidance on how to increase the amount of waste your organization diverts from landfill. Attendees will learn hands-on waste reduction strategies, including how to conduct a waste audit, how to use the findings from the audit effectively, how to interface with your waste and recycling haulers, how to obtain buy-in from staff and how to calculate the carbon footprint of an organization’s waste.
Carbon 613 Labs
Carbon 613 Labs will dive into sustainability best practices for businesses. Facilitated by sustainability experts, the goal of these labs is to give Carbon 613 members the knowledge and tools necessary to implement sustainability measures in their own organizations.
Carbon 613 Seminars
Carbon 613 Seminars will showcase current trends and challenges in sustainability for businesses. Presented by national sustainability leaders, the goal of these seminars is to inspire Carbon 613 members and the public to take their next big step towards sustainability.
