EPA Circular Economy Conference 2022 Roundup

The EPA Circular Economy Conference took place at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on September 22nd 2022.

The theme for the event was ‘Driving Ireland’s move to a Circular Economy’, a message that resonated with the team at Shabra. Our CEO, Rita Shah, was in attendance and was one of the speakers on the day. There is a growing awareness of the importance of developing circular systems to improve ecology. Companies are embracing new approaches to plastic waste management especially in light of recent proposals tabled by the European Parliament’s regarding a plastic waste export ban.

“The carbon impact from transport of these transactions is 48 times more carbon emissions. The consequences of not having a circular economy where waste material can be reprocessed in Ireland and made in to a future Irish product again, again and again is significant and very important in curtailing carbon emission from 48 tonnes to zero.”
