About this Event

The Second Annual Zero Waste Summit will convene March 24-26th in Newark, N.J.

Companies for Zero Waste hosts the premier forum for CEOs +sustainability leaders - from the business world, government agencies, NGOs and investors connecting and exploring emerging trends to move towards zero waste goals, pressing challenges and promising opportunities shaping business amid a world of climate change, resource constraints and unprecedented stakeholder pressures.

“Our research showed experienced professionals were frustrated with the inability to keep pace with global changes in sustainability. There is a massive amount of biased data and misinformation on sustainability and that is why face to face meetings are more important than ever."

Zero Waste Goals will be met following the 5PS- People Planet Prosperity Peace Partnerships.

The goals are to re-design resource life cycles so that materials are reused and waste becomes a valuable commodity. Discarded materials become resources that are recycled back into nature or to the marketplace to be reused again. . $4.5 trillion of capital will be allocated into the circular economy by 2030. We plan on accelerating these investments into emerging technologies.
