OverviewThe Zero Waste Network (ZWN) is composed of leading retail waste management and compliance executives who work to improve materials management and eliminate product and packaging waste throughout their supply chains, distribution networks and facilities. As the retail industry moves forward on a path to a more circular economy, the ZWN provides a forum for retail zero waste executives to hear from experts and engage peer-to-peer benchmarking on the implementation, management, and oversight of retail waste programs.
Topics covered include:
- Minimization options for waste generated at retail facilities and product and packaging supply chains including, recycling, donation; composting, and reuse and more reliable diversion-enabling markets
- How retailers can work with value chain stakeholders to assess alternative materials; and
- Innovative technologies and initiatives that promote a more circular economy.
