October Business Luncheon - Economic Growth Through An Environmental Lens

  • Monday, October 29, 2018
  • 11:30 AM - 2:00 PM
  • Cairns Convention Centre


This October business luncheon we have partnered up with the Committee for Waste Reduction and CCIQ ecoBiz to bring the topic of waste and environment to the mainstream.

The conversation is getting louder every day around how to implement better business practices and daily habits.

There is a higher number of policies being introduced now more than ever in the area of waste management such as the plastic bag ban, the container deposit scheme and the waste levy.

But where do you start and how does this relate to you?

We have an opportunity in front of us to create further economic growth, jobs and innovation through waste infrastructure. Waste is an ongoing part of life, if goes hand in hand with a growing population and as such we need to give it the respect it deserves as it can offer consistent employment not just in cities but also in remote locations where employment is traditionally low.
