ChangeNow Summit (Paris, France)
“When tackling the waste issue it’s essential to first keep in mind: how can we produce as little waste as possible? This involves first of all: be sober with the use of signage, decoration, and any installation in general, and to encourage rental. Secondly, we think about how we can be able to reuse as much as possible the waste still produced, and therefore be careful to not put date on signages for example (so we can use for next summit!). Finally, we look at recycle solutions working with efficient service providers.
With regard to the waste produced by others, the challenge is twofold: managing the summit participants’ waste, but also to raise awareness of the environmental cause. For example, by choosing our foodtrucks carefully, but also by communicating on the necessary commitments of each one!”
