BBIA CONFERENCE – RESOURCE AND WASTE MANAGEMENT: A BLUEPRINT FOR A CIRCULAR BIOECONOMY

This event aims to help join up thinking across sectors. The tendency to silo our contributions to environmental policies leads us to push for solutions that may cause challenges elsewhere, or not solve wider issues. It is time to realise that everything is connected.

The one-day conference will address how climate change, soil and water quality, biodiversity loss, food production and waste, packaging and packaging waste, energy policies and health, are inextricably linked. In this complex nexus of policies, investments, consumer behaviour, industrial strategy and public health, we will also look at how innovation can improve life quality and provide a range of cross-sector solutions, whilst stimulating investments and employment in cutting edge industries in the UK. With this event, we aim to feed into policies on resources and waste, the bioeconomy, the 25 Year Environment Plan, the Industrial Strategy and the Clean Growth Strategy.

This is a call to action for the implementation of readily-available solutions to halt the rapid advance of climate change and global pollution. We must act immediately to change the paradigm from our current business-as-usual approach to one that stimulates disruptive innovation and enhances environmental protection.
