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).

Katie Schindall on Cisco’s holistic approach to circular economy This video is sponsored by Cisco. “By drawing connections across the different pieces of it, we see opportunities that we may not otherwise connect. We have a focus on operations and we work with our supply chain around reducing resource use and waste and we also have a focus on design. By focusing on our suppliers and bringing those ideas of the circular economy into how we work with our suppliers, they come up with ideas that in turn help us to achieve goals that we may have around product and packaging design.” Lauren Phipps, director & senior analyst of circular economy at GreenBiz, interviewed Katie Schindall, director of circular economy at Cisco during the VERGE 20 virtual event (October 26-30, 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.

Comments Off on Morgan Stanley’s role in addressing the plastic waste problem

Morgan Stanley’s role in addressing the plastic waste problem When Morgan Stanley decided to launch its Plastic Waste Resolution in April 2019, it had realized that plastic waste was a business issue. That was after looking at its global client base, which includes companies across industries from chemicals to consumer packaging, as well as individuals and governments.  “We realized that actually gives you the entire plastic waste value chain, from creation, use, disposal, reuse or not, disposal or not,” said Audrey Choi, chief marketing officer and chief sustainability officer at Morgan Stanley, “Although we ourselves weren’t [on the] frontlines of any of those stages, we really touched all of it.” As a financial institution, Choi said the company realized it had a role to play in addressing the plastic waste problem at the systems level. Joel Makower, chairman and executive editor at GreenBiz, interviewed Audrey Choi, chief marketing officer and chief sustainability officer at Morgan Stanley, 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.

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.
