Professor Veena Sahajwalla, NSW Circular: "market-based solutions to opportunities and challenges"

The NSW Circular Economy Innovation Network, a new State Government initiative, is partnering with the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre to help Hunter Valley and Central Coast businesses develop circular economy solutions locally.

They are hosting an event at the Gosford RSL Club on 7th August for over 150 leading local business leaders and other industry, government and research representatives to develop more sustainable operations and to reduce waste, which in many cases can be used as a resource for manufacturing. Registration is available on the NSW Circular website.

Professor Veena Sahajwalla, Director of NSW Circular and Professor of Materials Science at the University of NSW, will deliver a keynote presentation showcasing best practices in sustainability while helping businesses grow and create more jobs.

“We are aiming to facilitate market-based solutions to the opportunities and challenges faced in efficiently managing our materials, supplies and waste and we will be looking for pilot projects to create new pathways and outcomes,” she says.

AMGC National Director of Industry Michael Sharpe will then facilitate a discussion on ‘The path to a circular economy’ with leading business and not-for-profit representatives to learn about best practices and identify new local circular economy solutions.

“Hunter and Central Coast businesses are already some of the most innovative in Australia and with this event we hope to share some of those examples to develop more circular economy solutions,” he says. “The manufacturing sector plays a critical role in this area which is resulting in more efficient business operations and economic growth.

“We will learn from some of the biggest and most dynamic business leaders in the country to understand how a circular approach can be incorporated into local supply chains and deliver greater economic, social and environmental benefits.”
