The end of plastic as we know it

Empowering NZ business and acting on plastic

We are in the middle of a worldwide movement away from the waste and pollution of discarding fossil fuel derived plastics. It is having profound impacts throughout every business and sector. Huge advantages await those getting ahead of the curve, with growing risks for those lagging behind.

New Zealanders have a reputation as courageous innovators. We have the opportunity to lead the world. This is especially true with regards to new materials development and packaging use in primary industries. But our relative remoteness and small scale provide unique challenges.

The Sustainable Business Network is hosting this special one day event. Together business leaders and experts will take an in depth look at this issue. We will explore what it means for your business and for sustainable business in New Zealand. The day will provide you with the practical information and inspiration you need to thrive in the emerging low carbon circular economy. Together we will touch on design, procurement, supply chain management and more. Unrivalled networking opportunities will give you the system-wide connections you need to succeed.

Who it’s for

The NZ business community. The people at the heart of creating a new thriving sustainable economy – SMEs, social enterprise, government, SBN members. Connecting solutions providers, innovators and entrepreneurs, youth, expertise and those ready to take action.
