It's almost time for the Waste Management Sustainability Forum, where thought leaders come together to exchange ideas and build a better, cleaner future together. This year's event will help you take your big ideas and turn them into bold, world-changing actions.

First, you'll hear from Jim Fish, Waste Management's President and CEO, Mike Rowe, Executive Producer and Show Host and Keller Rinaudo, Founder and CEO of Zipline, about the amazing power of people. Next up is an interactive conversation between Mayors who lead positive change, sharing their unique perspective on livability, resilience, economics, community compassion – and defining moments that have shaped their cities and citizenries. After lunch, you'll get a recycling update that covers market trends - including an industry look at "The China Story" - and technologies, followed by a finely-tuned panel focused on implementing lifecycle thinking and sustainable materials management (SMM). Then we'll dig even deeper and discuss whether SMM/lifecycle assessment (LCA) contradicts or complements recycling-focused efforts along the supply chain. And to round it out, a workshop on the U.S. EPA Waste Reduction Model (WARM).

The Sustainability Forum is a place where the bright ideas that will build a better future take shape, so you don't want to miss your chance to participate. There's still time to register for the event. You'll get front-row seats to the future of sustainable business.
