The Zero Waste Conference is presented by Metro Vancouver and the National Zero Waste Council

The Zero Waste Conference offers participants a curated program of local and global thought leaders who share their insights and inspirations about circular economy success stories and waste prevention innovations.

2020 has been a year of global disruption as well as a time of social reckoning. The drive to recover is strong with leaders from business, governments, and communities pushing for a just and green recovery. This is a time of opportunity and in the words of Dame Ellen MacArthur, “We need to step forward, not backwards”.

For 10 years, the Zero Waste Conference has been at the forefront of Canada’s circular economy journey, and we invite you to join us once again. Bringing together thought leaders, innovators and change makers, surfacing some of the best ideas from the past while presenting pioneering solutions that take us to a future we’ve only begun to dare dream is possible.

In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, this year’s Zero Waste Conference will be a virtual event with a small studio audience.
