|Green Rio and Rio Orgânico 2014|
Held again at the “Tom Jobim Space” in the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Gardens, Green Rio 2014 will be remembered for the increased space available for exhibitors and for the quality of its content: 22 lecturers discussed important themes, from production and research to the legacy of mega events.
Em In 2015, Green Rio will raise its international profile, both in the exhibitors and speakers area and in the Green Rio Business Round.
One of the highlights of Green Rio 2014 was the presentation of the results of a survey carried out by a partnership involving UNEP, Planeta Orgânico and Sebrae, with support from SENAC RIO, about the sustainable management of food waste from restaurants.
This was the first survey carried out in Latin America using a methodology established by UNEP.
