Circular Economy Leaders Consortium

Looking to implement a zero-waste strategy and reduce your carbon footprint?

Join the Circular Economy Leaders Consortium supported by TELUS and lead a contingent of sustainable industry professionals seeking to achieve measurable waste prevention and diversion goals, focused on facility management and operations, by:

  1. Learning from each other’s waste management & circular economy projects
  2. Sharing resources and expertise on best practices and innovative technologies
  3. Strategizing solutions to common challenges through collective projects
  4. Identifying opportunities for continuous improvement
Measurable Goals
  • Waste reduction
  • Waste Diversion and resource recovery
  • Greenhouse gas emission reductions

Since its establishment in 2008, Partners in Project Green has been facilitating consortiums and offering programs that have measurably benefitted the business community.

Between 2013-2020, PPG’s Energy Leader’s Consortium has implemented more than 450 conservation projects that annually saved 128,000 eMWh of energy, 670 million litres of water and $30 million in utility costs. In this same time, PPG’s Waste Programming has diverted 20,565 tonnes of material from landfill.

We have launched! On March 29th 2022, PPG, in partnership with TELUS, launched the Circular Economy Leaders Consortium (CEC), joined by Founding Members and Advisors.
