David Baggs, GreenTag’s CEO and Program Director is delivering a keynote address this week in South Africa for the African Capital Cities Sustainability Forum, hosted by the City of Tshwane for Sustainability Week. David’s keynote is titled ‘Visualising the Circular Economy Using Life Cycle Analysis’ for the technical program Vision Zero Waste Seminar on June 2.
With focus on design for waste minimisation and recycling, David has been invited to deliver the keynote in the context of a vision for zero waste in South Africa. The seminar comes at a critical time, organisers say, when waste streams are at an all-time high, where some communities are without waste services and landfills are reaching capacity.
David brings hoped for solutions. He will be focusing on the circular nature of the mindset required to reduce the impact of waste – and how this is possible through LCA centric design.
“Conventional thinking is stuck on damage and loss,” says David.
“From a Global GreenTag perspective, I shall be offering clarity about the terminology used in the area of Life Cycle Analysis thinking and how it naturally applies to a circular economy mindset and sustainable solutions for ecological regeneration.”
David is also presenting two other seminars at Sustainability Week.
In the series for Sustainable Manufacturing, he will be delivering a seminar titled: ‘Sustainability Metrics and LCA: The Business Benefits’
For the Green Business series of Sustainability Week, David is presenting: “The Role of Ecolabels in Greening the Supply Chain.”
