Circular economy leaders booked for Melbourne conference

Infrastructure’s role in driving a circular economy – with recycled and reused materials at the forefront – will be explored at a Melbourne conference in September.

The Greener Infrastructure Conference, convened by ecologiQ, will also examine how governments at all levels can use procurement and policy to change how waste is used.

Keynote speakers will include Victorian deputy Premier Jacinta Allan, world-renowned recycling revolutionary Professor Veena Sahajwalla, and the Chief Engineer of Engineers Australia, Jane MacMaster.

Australian Council of Recyclers CEO Suzanne Toumbourou will also be speaking at the two-day conference on 6-7 September.
