ResourceWise 2011- National Waste Prevention Programme conference
The EPA-led National Waste Prevention Programme is organising a conference looking at the challenges and opportunities in becoming more resource efficient, exploring ways of producing more value with fewer inputs, lessening our impact on the environment and consuming in a more intelligent fashion.
The conference will address the challenges of resource depletion and scarcities, raising awareness of the environmental impact of excess consumption and waste and showcase waste prevention and resource efficiency initiatives by organisations contributing to the shift towards a resource-efficient economy.
The event will offer an opportunity for debate and exchanges of experience and best practice being demonstrated by participants in the National Waste Prevention Programme and explore practical ways to minimise and prevent waste, so as to break the link between economic growth and the environmental impacts associated with the generation of waste.
The conference will take place on Wednesday 1 June 2011 at the Radisson Blu St. Helen’s Hotel in Dublin.
