ReLondon to Join Sustainable Foods London debate
ReLondon’s CEO Wayne Hubbard will join leading figures to discuss Circular Food at this year’s Sustainable Foods London.
ReLondon is a partnership of the Mayor of London and the London boroughs to improve waste and resource management and transform the city into a leading low carbon circular economy.
Around 7m tonnes of waste is produced each year in London from our homes, public buildings and businesses. Food waste and plastic, packaging including single use coffee cups and plastic bottles combined, account for around 30% of this.
Businesses of every size can design out waste throughout their supply chain, using circular economy business models or simply being as efficient with their resources as possible. It makes good business sense, as well as environmental, to manage valuable resources carefully.
The organisation runs several initiatives including partnering with businesses to help them test, validate and scale circular business approaches. Wayne is the Chief Executive Officer of ReLondon (formerly the London Waste and Recycling Board), where he is responsible for helping London’s boroughs to reduce waste and increase recycling rates and accelerating the development of a low carbon circular economy. He has been working for LWARB since 2008. Prior to this he was the Head of Waste Policy at the Greater London Authority. Wayne is a trustee on the board of the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management. He has 25 years’ experience in the waste and resource management industry.
