About The Summit
Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Climate change and sustainability and its environmental, social and economic impact continue to rise up the agendas of governments and organizations around the world.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges, humanity face, including those related to climate action, environmental degradation, prosperity, poverty alleviation, affordable and clean energy. Many global companies are using these as framework to guide their sustainability strategies. Today’s global waste and recycling industries are valued at USD265.65 billion.
In recent years, the concept of “circular economy” has taken a huge following. A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy in which resources in use are kept for as long as possible, extracting the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recovering and reusing products and materials.
The focus of the circular economy extends beyond issues related to material management and covers other aspects, including energy efficiency and conservation, land management, soil protection and water.

Unique To This Year's Event
POST – SUMMIT SUSTAINABILITY INNOVATIONS SITE TOURS: 20 SEPTEMBER 2019
Site Tour A: Circular Economy and Environmental Sustainable Projects
In this post summit site tour, you will have the chance to discover how innovative organizations are using sustainable practices to improve their products. Lego, for example, will be producing their iconic products made with sustainable botanical elements sourced from sugar cane instead of plastics to transform their sustainability practices. This site tour will bring you to the inner hearts of companies that’s driving sustainable innovations and best practices.
Site Tour B: Low Carbon Living: Reducing Construction Wastes and Improving Sustainability with Circular Economy Modular Building
The construction industry is one of the most adversely impacting single industries in the world in terms of both waste production and greenhouse gas emissions. In Australia alone, construction and demolition waste represents about 40 per cent of its yearly waste production. This site tour will show you how innovative construction companies are creating new resources out of waste, reduce materials used, and design for reusability and recyclability.
Site Tour C: Sustainable Packaging Site Tour
In 40 years of plastic history only 14% of global plastic packaging was recycled. All the rest worth 120 billion is lost after only one single use. And nearly ⅓ of all plastic packaging leaks into eco-system where it can stay around for 100’s of years. By 2050 this means there could be more plastic than fish in the sea. Technology in the next 5 years will transform how packaging is used. This site tour will show you Australia’s leading innovations in sustainable packaging and how they are using these innovative materials to reduce waste, improve recyclability.
