This edition covers the topic of Recycling and E-Waste. There are a few articles, including our Cover Story, that discusses the topic - so be sure to dive in and read the content from some of our members and industry professionals.I’m constantly posting stories on LinkedIn about companies who have put a sustainability plan into place in the next 5-10 years. It’s great to see this and I hope to post more and more. However, I recently came across some Research and Analysis that stated that, just in the United States, we seem to under-count the waste we produce, and unfortunately by a lot. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/jiec.12752 (Thank you RLA Member, Chris Cloutier of CoreCentric Solutions, for the lead).
How disappointing. We’ve come so far in taking care of our planet, or so we thought, but we have so much more work to do. As individuals, we need to start in the home, and be sure to sort and recycle as much as we can. But on a bigger scale, we need to make sure our companies are doing all they can to be green, and find a plan to be more sustainable. Our upcoming Conferences in Amsterdam (Oct 15-17) and Las Vegas (Feb 5-7) will be covering topics on Circular Economy to help you find better practices in Sustainability.
