Overview

Every year, the world transforms more than 100 billion tons of raw material into products. Less than 25% becomes buildings, cars or other long-lasting things. Less than 10% cycles back into the economy. 67% goes to waste

Description

We know there’s a problem, but what’s the answer? How do we become more sustainable?
 
This BRANZ/Edge Environment webinar explores the need to move to a circular economy – one that also addresses climate change and modern-day slavery.
 
Through presentations and guest speakers, we explain:

  • What ‘sustainable materials’ means
  • The relationship to life cycle assessment, responsible sourcing and the circular economy
  • How and where to find certifications, EPDs and rating tools
  • The roles that different actors in the supply chain can play to lead us towards more sustainable materials.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

This is a free webinar and NZIQS members can claim 1 Formal CPD point for attending.
