Why Every Facility Managers Should Attend the
PROFITABLE ZERO-WASTE VIRTUAL SUMMIT

icons8-waste-512

Literally Nothing Like It – First off, there is no other conference in the world that speaks directly to facility managers at for-profit businesses responsible for reducing waste on-site. Most zero-waste events target waste haulers, academia, government, and nonprofits with only a sampling of businesses in attendance.

The Experts You Are Looking For – You will hear from businesses who have gone where you want to go. You will hear from vendors who helped those businesses get there. You will hear from the only agencies that can verify your performance. You will hear from “thought leaders” who have also “done it.”

Our Pitch Free Guarantee - This isn’t a pitch-fest where each speaker dangles a carrot but then you have to buy something in order to actually benefit. Every one of our experts are leading their industry with real solutions, which they’re revealing to you from their first minute on the virtual stage.

icons8-home-400

Truly Free and Accessible – Seriously, there is no cost. Thanks to our sponsors you get access to every talk for free. And you can watch at your own pace online from the comfort of your own office or home. All you need is an internet connection and a laptop, mobile phone or tablet.
