EXPRA Executive Director Joachim Quoden was one of dozens of speakers featured at the 7th Conference on Canadian Stewardship, held in Montreal at the end of September
Some 600 delegates from industry, government and stewardship programs from Canada, North America and Europe were exposed to a wide variety of perspectives on the topic of EPR and circular economy , this year’s theme for this biannual event. The event also featured keynote speaker Jean Lemire, a biologist, researcher and award-winning documentary filmmaker, who shared his insights on climate change and biodiversity.
Delegates also participated in a series of industrial visits, including state-of-the art glass treatment facilities financed by EXPRA member Éco Entreprises Québec, as part of its Glassworks Innovative Plan to ensure a second life to glass collected by Quebec’s curbside recycling system.
