Network with sustainability trailblazers at the Zero Waste Awards
Recycling professionals are invited to join fellow sustainability trailblazers at The Zero Waste Recognition Lunch, which celebrates the fantastic work that organisations from the public, private and third sector are doing to drive down waste from landfill. The event will be held at the 12th Century Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire on Thursday 9th April 2015.
Guests - whether entrants or non-entrants, will enjoy a sparkling drinks reception, followed by a sumptuous three course lunch whilst networking with a wide range of organisations working towards the same goal. A keynote address will be given by Sue Armstrong-Brown, Head of Policy at the think tank, Green Alliance.
Recognising that sustainability is a team effort, not a contest, the Zero Waste Awards aren't competitive and entrants are judged purely on their merits. Winners are awarded with gold, silver, bronze or highly commended for their efforts.
Open to public, private and third sector organisations, the annual Zero Waste Awards recognise all types of initiative that prevent waste at source, from supply chain collaborations to innovative processes and business models. Previous winners have included KP Snacks, New York Bakery, FareShare and Portakabin, with hundreds more recognised for their work towards the Zero Waste goal.
"Achieving the ultimate goal of a zero waste society will take collaboration, innovation and sheer hard work, and will result in significant benefits to communities, the economy and the environment," says Steve Eminton, editor of letsrecycle.com
"The Zero Waste Awards celebrate the impact of sustainable business models and show others what can be achieved."
