NISP® Canada – Circular Economy Workshop (Surrey)
February 6, 8:30 am–1:00 pm$15
The NISP® Canada team invite you to participate in our next Business Opportunities Workshop in the City of Surrey, 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.
– Expand the regional circular economy and drive innovation.
– 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.
After the workshop, participants will receive reports regarding matches made during the workshop.
Practitioners will provide FREE follow-up to move ideas into business realities.
