The evolution of trends in ESG reporting and investments has become increasingly relevant for the waste and recycling industry. On Jan. 24, Waste Dive hosted a live online discussion with two top executives from ESG-driven companies to learn more about what the increasing focus on environment, social and governance issues means for their operations.
Lead Editor Cole Rosengren was joined by Alan Handley, CEO of Illinois-based LRS, and David Darr, chief sustainability officer of Massachusetts-based Vanguard Renewables. Their discussion — including live questions from the audience — covered trends in investment partners, sustainability reporting, customer expectations, capital expenditures for new MRF and organics recycling projects, labor issues, competing on price with disposal and more.
The event also included a panel discussion about state recycling policy trends, which you can watch here.
