Smart Waste and Global Science Company Team to Promote Circularity

Rubicon and UL will work together on their shared goals and aspirations towards zero waste and sustainability while creating economic value.

Smart waste software specialist Rubicon is partnering with global safety science company, UL, to support their shared circularity and sustainability aspirations to end waste while creating economic value.

The partnership will help the two organisations create the ecosystem needed to advance the circular economy.

Dual Benefit

UL and Rubicon will work to extend third-party validation services such as UL’s standards for circularity, recycled content, and waste diversion to Rubicon’s customers and collaborators, while helping UL customers identify and access Rubicon recycling and waste reduction services across the sustainable material management value chain.

Rubicon provides a suite of SaaS products for waste, recycling, and smart city solutions, and collects and analyses data for businesses and governments. Its solutions are used by cities around the globe.

“To achieve greater sustainability and more circular economies, we need to use each tool in our toolbox to stem the flow of valuable assets discarded as waste every day,” said Catherine Sheehy, global lead of sustainability partnerships for UL’s environment and sustainability division.

UL helps create a better world by applying science to solve safety, security and sustainability challenges.

Sheehy continued: “By aligning our strengths and roles in the value chain, UL and Rubicon can help customers move forward on this decade of action to achieve the aspirations of the UN Sustainable Development Goals while also informing environmental, social, and governance investment risk analysis.”

The companies will collaborate on market education and outreach efforts to continue to reduce dependency on landfills.

“This agreement advances Rubicon and UL’s shared goals of enabling new opportunities for economic growth that do not depend on the old take-make-waste economic model,” said David Rachelson, chief sustainability officer at Rubicon. “Since Rubicon’s founding, we’ve known that there are better ways to deal with the global waste problem.

“This seed has helped us grow a suite of services that not only help our customers manage and divert waste from landfills but reduce associated carbon emissions and improve quality of life. Collaborating with UL, a mission-based organisation using the power of science to improve the world, just makes sense.”
