EcoCity Session 05D: Ecological Imperatives Ecological Integrity: Whole Systems Approaches to Greening the Supply and Resupply Chain

10:25 – 10:40 – S.05D.01: Advancing the Circular Economy via Industrial Symbiosis: Lessons from the NISP® Canada Pilot, Tracy Casavant, Light House / NISP, Canada

CEC Vancouver Global Screening “Closing the Loop”

This event is organized by Light House Sustainable Building Centre and NISP® Canada with Langara College at the Science & Technology Building – Langara College, Room T001. This event is part of Circular Economy Club (CEC) Global Screening CECVancouver.

In support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (especially Goal 12 on Responsible Consumption and Production), the documentary explores five key strategies for achieving circularity – reduce, reuse, recycle, renew and reinvent – by showcasing examples from Europe, Latin America and Africa and featuring insights from experts from the likes of the World Economic Forum and the Universities of Cambridge and Harvard.

This Circular Economy Club event will expand your knowledge around what circularity really means and the circular initiatives taking place globally. It is also an opportunity to socialise with other circular economy professionals and brainstorm future projects.

After the screening, there will be a networking session for you to interact with circular economy enthusiasts across different sectors and types of organizations.

At the end of the screening, you will get a clear idea of the state of the circular economy and will have clear examples to help you explain the circular framework to others. You will also have the chance to learn about what other peers are doing worldwide.

Who is the event for?

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

About the Circular Economy Club (CEC): CEC is the international network of over 2,600 circular economy professionals and organisations in over 60 countries. CEC is global and open. Anyone can join for free online. The network gathers architects, engineers, business leaders, researchers and makers that are resetting the world standards.

NISP Canada: Circular Economy-Based Workshop (New Westminster, BC)

The NISP® Canada team invite you to participate in our next Business Opportunities Workshop, as part of the Canadian National Industrial Symbiosis Program (NISP®). This initiative aims to develop innovative resource management solutions and generate triple bottom line benefits to companies based in the Metro Vancouver region.

This workshop aims to:
– Find ways of turning waste by-products into valued resource inputs.
– Reduce waste management costs.
– Generate new business opportunities.
– Increase the size and diversity of your business network.
– Identify means of improving environmental performance.

– Expand the regional circular economy and drive innovation.

Workshop agenda:
– Networking breakfast.
– Welcoming remarks, keynote speaker, and overview workshop format.
– Round-table idea generation and resource matching (1.5 to 2 hours).
– Recap of the day’s achievements and synergies discovered.

– Light lunch with additional networking and to launch post-workshop follow-up by NISP® practitioners.

Over 30 regions around the globe have used NISP® events to help tens of thousands of businesses boost revenues, reduce costs, and improve environmental performance.

The principle behind Industrial Symbiosis is simple: Instead of being thrown away or destroyed, surplus resources generated by a manufacturing or ‘maker’ process are captured and then redirected for use as a new input for another process by one or more other companies, providing a mutual benefit or symbiosis.
These mutually profitable links are not restricted to materials. Other potential linkages can be based on such resources as: energy, wastewater, transportation, warehousing and expertise.
If you want to build your business network, achieve cost savings, generate sales from new markets, and contribute towards creating an environmentally sustainable economy;
