ChargePoint’s Pasquale Romano on the state of electrification during the pandemic This video is sponsored by ChargePoint. “We have found that because of goods delivery being so critical now, even more so than it has been during pre-pandemic times, the fleet market for us is really seeing lots of activity. Virtually every single company out there that has anything from small vans or normal passenger cars all the way up through larger medium and heavy-duty vehicles – we’re just seeing a tremendous amount of interest and activity in that segment and I think it’s because it is so effective in reducing the cost structure of those services.” Katie Fehrenbacher, senior writer & analyst for transportation at GreenBiz, interviewed Pasquale Romano, president & CEO of ChargePoint, during the VERGE 20 virtual event (October 26-30, 2020).

Here’s what embedding circularity looks like at Cisco

Comments Off on Here’s what embedding circularity looks like at Cisco

Here’s what embedding circularity looks like at Cisco When Cisco started embedding circular economy practices into its work several years ago, it worked on building proof of concepts first. For other companies looking to embark on a similar journey, Scott Scheeler, vice president of engineering at the company, advises that they start small and build from there. “Don’t start where we are now. We started several years ago and we started small,” Scheeler said. One of the projects Cisco is currently working on is extending the life cycle of some of its products by making them modular, enabling customers to replace parts of a product after a couple years instead of buying a brand new one. “We’ve always kind of designed our products to have a long life cycle,” Scheeler said. “But what’s different now is we’re thinking about it as it may end up going to more than one customer. … Now we’re talking about products that may last in the field for five, 10, even 15 years.” Deonna Anderson, associate editor at GreenBiz Group, interviewed Scott Scheeler, vice president of engineering at Cisco, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

Comments Off on Tech company Rubicon is on a mission to end waste

Tech company Rubicon is on a mission to end waste Technology company Rubicon’s business mission is to end waste, in all of its forms. For David Rachelson, chief sustainability officer at Rubicon, and his team, working toward that mission looks, in part, like supporting its customers in the commercial sector — from small and medium-sized businesses to Fortune 500s — as they craft waste reduction and circular economy objectives of their own. As the circular economy changes and expands, Rubicon is working to partner businesses who are doing innovative work in the space with its customers.  “We’re always trying to look forward while also helping customers with their daily needs that do not go away while we’re looking to innovate,” Rachelson said. The U.S. waste market offers a lot of challenges but Rubicon sees many of them as opportunities, according to Rachelson.  Deonna Anderson, associate editor at GreenBiz Group, interviewed David Rachelson, chief sustainability officer at Rubicon, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

How Keurig Dr Pepper is increasing its packaging recyclability In 2019, Keurig Dr Pepper launched its Drink Well. Do Good. corporate responsibility platform aimed, in part, at reducing its environmental footprint. One of the goals of the platform was to convert all packaging to recyclable or compostable formats by 2025, while increasing the use of recycled content.  Monique Oxender, chief sustainability officer at Keurig Dr Pepper, shared status updates on this goal and details about the work that went into improving the recyclability of its packaging. “You have to make sure that something is not just recyclable but that it is going to be recycled,” she said. “We took this innovative pathway of engagement with recyclers and communities, used that feedback to inform our design. And now as we’re rolling out the product and you’re seeing it on shelves, consumers can recycle with confidence.”   John Davies, vice president and senior analyst at GreenBiz, interviewed Monique Oxender, chief sustainability officer at Keurig Dr Pepper, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

Rheaply is helping companies and organizations of all sizes expand their circularity

Comments Off on Rheaply is helping companies and organizations of all sizes expand their circularity

Rheaply is helping companies and organizations of all sizes expand their circularity Back in January, GreenBiz published a story about Rheaply , a resource management and exchange platform. But a lot has changed since the beginning of the year. When the COVID-19 pandemic started, the company shifted gears to support those who need personal protective gear through its Emergency Resource Exchange. “What we’ve tried to do is use our technology, which connects people to items traditionally, specifically to help with PPE sourcing during this unprecedented time in global history,” said Garry Cooper, CEO of Rheaply. As the pandemic rages on and the company continues to get people the resources they need to address it, there are still other valuable items sitting idle on shelves that other people can use instead of buying new ones. It’s important for companies and organizations to continue to — or start to — move toward zero waste practices. “Moving towards a system and an economy by which we do not waste things, we view usage over consumption and access over ownership is super important,” Cooper said. “Zero waste is the mechanism that every company, government and organization should be taking hold to make operational today.” Deonna Anderson, associate editor at GreenBiz Group, interviewed Garry Cooper, CEO of Rheaply during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

Partnership is key for InterContinental Hotels Group’s circularity goals

Comments Off on Partnership is key for InterContinental Hotels Group’s circularity goals

Partnership is key for InterContinental Hotels Group’s circularity goals InterContinental Hotels Group, which has tens of thousands of properties currently in operation or development, has a large footprint. But did you know that many of its properties are run by third parties? That makes working toward sustainability goals challenging, according to Catherine Dolton, vice president of global corporate responsibility at the company. “It’s all about influencing those third parties to make changes,” she said. Still, it’s striving toward big goals. Earlier in 2020, the hotels group set science-based targets to address its water and waste impacts, as well as how it works with the communities in which is operates. And it’s started working in partnership with other companies to try to reach its circular economy goals. “We do have the power to make a difference,” Dolton said. “It’s not just about collaboration outside the industry. We also work with out peers through the International Tourism Partnership.” Shana Rappaport, vice president and executive director of VERGE at GreenBiz Group, interviewed Catherine Dolton, vice president of global corporate responsibility at InterContinental Hotels Group, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.
