Former Philadelphia Mayor Joins the Board of Rubicon

Michael Nutter is expanding his role with the smart waste and recycling company after partnering with RubiconSmartCity in his capacity as an advisory board member for two years.

Former Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter has joined the board of directors of smart waste and recycling solutions firm Rubicon.

For the past two years, Nutter, a well-known leader in sustainability and smart city innovation, has partnered with the RubiconSmartCity business in his capacity as an advisory board member.

Knowledge of Government Workings

Michael Nutter has led the efforts to help grow and develop Rubicon’s smart city business, as well as advocate for the company and its mission.

In a statement, Rubicon said his familiarity with the intricacies and functioning of city government, as well as his understanding of what it takes to develop collaborative partnerships between business and government has proven invaluable for Rubicon, RubiconSmartCity, and most importantly, dozens of the company’s city government partners.

Additionally, the mayor has expanded his role as an advisor to various other business units within the company.

“He is a proven and effective leader who knows first-hand the lead role cities can and must play in providing cost-effective solutions to waste, recycling, and other quality of life issues now facing communities across the country,” said Nate Morris, founder and CEO of Rubicon. “As an advisor to our RubiconSmartCity business over the past few years, he has fully embraced our mission to end waste, in all of its forms.”

Nutter was the 98th mayor of Philadelphia (2008-2016) where issues related to the environment and sustainable development were a cornerstone of the administration. He created the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability during his first term and led the development of the city’s comprehensive sustainability plan, Greenworks Philadelphia.

He also served as president of the United States Conference of Mayors (2012-2013), and is co-founder, and now advisory board member, of the African American Mayors Association.

“Two years ago, my strong beliefs in resiliency, equitable public service delivery, and responsible environmental policy fit perfectly with Rubicon’s mission to end waste and their advisory board focusing on smart cities,” said Michael Nutter. “I am excited to expand on our relationship by joining Rubicon’s board of directors, continuing to work with the many talented people at Rubicon, and furthering our mission.”

Rubicon provides smart waste and recycling solutions for businesses and governments worldwide. Its mission is to end waste, in all of its forms, by helping its partners find economic value in their waste streams and execute on their sustainability goals. It launched its inaugural Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report, Toward a Future Without Waste earlier this year.
