ABOUT

Business Review brings you an event that discusses environmental protection with a focus on waste management through a different approach. For years, all actors involved - national and local authorities, packaging manufacturers, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in the market, lightbulbs or batteries, waste management outsourcers/third-party entities, sanitation companies, recycling companies etc. - have been discussing awareness of the system’s shortcomings in Romania.

At the “Environmental and Sustainability Summit”, we’re taking a solution-oriented approach, focusing instead on the people and existing implemented projects that offer answers and on partners that have made an impact.
