Council on Foreign Relations Welcomes Rubicon to Its Corporate Program

Rubicon, a leading provider of sustainable waste and recycling solutions, is pleased to announce it has joined the Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) Corporate Program, an elite group of businesses committed to influencing global change.

Founded in 1921, CFR is an independent, nonpartisan organization, think tank and publisher. The Corporate Program, which is made up of approximately 200 leading corporations around the world, provides a forum for business leaders to be informed and engaged on key political, social and environmental issues.

Committed to the power of business to drive change, Rubicon is an active participant in the global conversation about environmental and social sustainability. Through its cloud-based technology, Rubicon partners with businesses to help increase their recycling efforts, find innovative alternatives for waste streams and build strong sustainability programs.

“Rubicon is committed to creating a more sustainable planet by disrupting the traditional waste management model,” says Rubicon CEO Nate Morris, who is also an individual CFR member. “We’re honored to be a part of the Council on Foreign Relations’ Corporate Program, which gives us a platform to advocate for sustainability issues and build relationships with other members to further Rubicon’s mission.”

Members of CFR’s Corporate Program interact with key influencers in government, academia, policy and research through the organization’s annual Corporate Conference and other high-profile events. Businesses also have the opportunity to contribute perspective to CFR’s research. A full list of corporate members is available here.
