September 18, 2020 Update: Thank you to all of those who joined this webinar. If you missed it, it is available to stream on demand at this link.
The COVID-19 public health emergency has shattered the norms under which public and private entities have worked for more than a century.
Against the backdrop of millions of Americans filing for unemployment due to the economic downturn brought on by the coronavirus, and multitudes of opinion pieces declaring “the end of cities,” join me, Rubicon’s Chief Strategy Officer, and David Rachelson, Rubicon’s Chief Sustainability Officer, on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at 1:00pm EDT as we argue that the stage has been set for the next era of businesses and cities, and that the most resilient entities are ready to seize the spotlight.
On the business side, you’ll hear how COVID-19 has proven environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles to be an essential discipline. You’ll hear about the company’s work with Best Buy to boost in-store diversion rates through employee training, and how Rubicon partnered with the Atlanta Hawks and State Farm Arena to help them divert 64 tons of waste from landfills, and gain LEED Gold certification.
On the city side, you’ll hear how the City of Spokane, Washington used Rubicon’s technology to collect an extra $2 million in revenue each year, and how the City of Montgomery, Alabama uncovered potential savings of $375,000 each year—recurring savings and revenue collection that not only represents tangible taxpayer dollars, but which allowed these cities to build future-proofed communities.
Resiliency and environmental, social, and governance principles go hand in hand. It is time for collective action to make the circular economy, and the resilient entities they foster, a reality. Are you in?
David and I are looking forward to welcoming you to Rubicon’s complimentary webinar, How Resilient Businesses and Governments Will Win 2020, on September 17. To register for the webinar, and the subsequent Q&A session, please fill out the details on this page.
