IECA Australasia would like to invite you to a series of webinars exploring ESC, sustainability and the circular economy. The series will begin on Thursday 23rd July and will run every week for approximately 4 weeks. We have a great line up of speakers and topics, please see details below. You will need to register for each webinar separately.

Sustainability and the Circular Economy are current buzz words in all industries. At the last 2 IECA Aust. conferences there was discussion around the use of ESC products and what happens to them on the completion of a project. If you are in the game of ESC it can be fairly safely assumed, you have the environment at heart. So, creating enormous amounts of land fill does not sit comfortably with you. This online workshop series highlights how the ESC industry is addressing this issue.

We currently have 4 sessions planned:

Session Topic Speaker Date Time
1 Sustainability in the ESC Industry Sarah Wilson, Lendlease Thursday July 23rd 10am
2 An introduction to a circular economy Shonelle Gleeson-Willey,
Moss Environmental and IECA Aust Director

Session 3: Is Biodegradability the Future of Erosion and Sediment Control?

With ‘Sustainability’ at the heart of most projects these days, it makes sense to be looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact in everything we do. Material choice can be challenging and with so many products available, choosing the best product for specific applications isn’t easy. Terra Lana will be exploring the possibilities of utilising biodegradable materials on projects and how not all biodegradability is created equal. This is a topical subject and an opportunity to challenge each other to work towards the common goal of regenerative design and a sustainable future
