Circular Procurement Summit
June 11 - June 13
Governments and purchasing groups are primed to disrupt our current linear model of consumption – take, make, dispose – to a circular model that incorporates environmental outcomes with economic drivers.
That’s why Recycling Council of Ontario is hosting a first-of-its-kind Circular Procurement Summit over three days to unite all levels of government, suppliers and vendors, and experts from leading jurisdictions to ignite the transition to the circular economy in cities and regions across Canada.
