TOMRA has joined over 200 forward-thinking companies as the newest member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) is a premier global, CEO-led community of over 200 of the world's leading sustainable businesses. Together with their members, WBCSD tackles the pressing sustainability challenges of the climate emergency, loss of nature, and mounting inequality. They offer solutions to accelerate value chain transformation across essential sectors of business activity, including food and agriculture, products and materials, energy, transport and mobility, and built environment.
WBCSD members are driving progress within their businesses through the exchange of best practices, education, standards and protocols, and tools and technology.
"TOMRA's expertise in sorting and recycling solutions is invaluable in driving the transition to a circular economy. Through their membership with WBCSD, TOMRA will work with like-minded leading organizations to develop innovative ideas and help accelerate the required transformation of businesses, their value chains, and the systems in which they operate, to limit the impact of the climate crisis, restore nature, and tackle inequality," said Peter Bakker, President and CEO of WBCSD.
TOMRA will contribute towards the overall sustainability ambition of WBCSD by bringing its unique holistic perspective on circularity into WBCSD. TOMRA aims to contribute to the development of innovative strategies that promote sustainable development, circularity and environmental stewardship.
"We must transform towards a circular economy now,” says Tove Andersen, TOMRA President and CEO. “That means working together across the value chain to find solutions as quickly as possible, because the solutions are there and TOMRA is proud to play a key role in it."
As one of the newest members of WBCSD, TOMRA will seek to making a positive impact on the environment and society through its innovative technologies and solutions and will contribute to a better understanding of trends, topics, and possible solutions in the sustainability sphere. The company’s vision is to lead the resource revolution, while establishing itself as an entirely circular business and maintaining safety measures as well as promoting fairness and inclusivity.
