“Australia needs to completely rethink its approach to waste – to consider it not as an accident, but as a design flaw in the products and services we consume.”

The ATSE Industry & Innovation Forum — Challenge 4.0 Workshop initiated a discussion within our the industry around the circular economy online.

In November 2020, the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering released its major report, Towards a Waste Free Future (you can read the report here). It examined Australia’s potential to create a circular economy, or an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. The report showcases how technology can transform the waste and resource-recovery sector in Australia, and support the transition towards a thriving circular economy.

Off the back of the release of the report, ATSE’s Industry & Innovation Forum set up the Challenge 4.0 meeting to dive deeper and connect industry with leaders in the field. The closed door meeting, conducted over Zoom, included a process of scene setting, then all attendees separated out into break-out rooms where they discussed the issues, identified the causes, brainstormed possible solutions, implemented a plan to work collaboratively and then  reconvened to summarise the discussions.

This was an invitation only, closed door meeting.
