ZERO WASTE SUMMIT: California Edition

Thursday, May 2, 2013

8:30 AM to 4:30 PM

taking place at

USC Town and Gown Ballroom

Exposition Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90089

Admission is FREE and Opent to the Public!

Join Pegasus Capital Advisors in collaboration with the USC Schwarzenegger Institute to discuss the challenges, opportunities and investment potential in moving forward to a Zero Waste future!

In a Zero Waste future, products are designed to be easily repurposed, businesses and communities recognize waste as an asset, not a liability and policy makers are engaged in removing barriers.

But it is not just limited to what we physically throw away— Zero Waste is also being more efficient in our use of energy, water and materials so we are not unnecessarily “wasting” valuable resources.

Pegasus Capital Advisors supports a Zero Waste solution that redefines waste as a resource to create new industries, jobs, and technologies. It is a business-oriented approach to community resource management that earns profits and provides a public good.

ZERO WASTE SUMMIT Participants Include:

  • Former CA Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (invited)
  • Craig Cogut, Pegasus Capital Advisors
  • Nestle Waters North America
  • Walmart (invited)
  • Whole Foods
  • US EPA- Environmental Protection Agency
  • NRDC- National Resources Defense Council
  • among others!
