Ryan Cooper, Waste Diversion Manager and Global Organics Recycling Lead at Rubicon (Twitter)
The circular economy, the method used to remove materials from waste streams and re-purpose them into new products and uses, has widespread economic value. Companies source fewer raw materials, increase resiliency in the face of material shortages, and can promote a greener, more sustainable supply chain.
Hosted by the Technology Association of Georgia (@TAGThink) and moderated by Ciannat Howett (@EmoryUniversity), Ryan Cooper (@RecycleOrganics) will join leaders from UPS Vignesh Anandan (@UPS) and Hartzfeld Sustainability Advisors (Jim Hartzfeld) as part of an exciting panel and breakfast discussion on how various Atlanta-based companies are building the business case around the circular economy.
