Waste Is An Old Fashioned Concept!

"About64,500 neighbourhoods, restaurants, hotels, shopping malls, supermarkets and scenic spots were inspected last month and more than 9,900 were found to have not strictly followed the garbage sorting regulations", according to Xinhua News.

Following Shanghai, garbage sorting in Beijing has become another hot topic on our daily TV News starting from May 1, 2020 amid the COVID-19 epidemic. With the city's household waste regulation taking effect, Beijing requires people to classify household waste into four categories: kitchen, recyclable, hazardous and other waste. The local government put great efforts to cultivate the habit of garbage classification to contribute to a sustainable environment to live and develop green economy.

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China is delighted to invite you to a webinar with Jet Chang, Vice President of Business Development at Tomra who will share his rich experience and thoughts on how this policy will have a great impact on business from different industries and why companies have to make recyclable design and how to do it?
