Meaghan Davis, Acting Manager; City of Toronto’s Unit for Research, Innovation, and a Circular Economy (UFRICE)

Meaghan Davis is the Acting Manager for the City of Toronto's Unit for Research, Innovation, and a Circular Economy (UFRICE). By striving toward an aspirational goal of zero waste and being Ontario's first municipality with a circular economy, Meaghan is working with her team to effect positive change for Toronto. One of her most exciting and rewarding projects to date is Toronto's first project to generate renewable natural gas (RNG) from Green Bin organic waste. This project will enable the City of Toronto to create a closed-loop approach where organics-collection-trucks can be powered by the waste product they collect. Currently, Meaghan focuses on ramping up Toronto's effort to pilot circular economy principles in procurements. She is leveraging the City's purchasing power to try and shift the way people think about waste, how products and packaging are designed, and how waste is managed to maximize resource recovery.
