With more than 20 years of environmental and business management experience, Tom has helped many business leaders leverage sustainability as a platform for innovation in developing their products and services while creating long-term value.Waste Management Sustainability Services provides senior level advisory services and sustainable innovation practices to organizations, communities and corporations using McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry’s Cradle to Cradle approach and the practical knowledge of recoverability within material management.Now the company is championing “designing for recyclability,” a concept that has the potential of turning around entire product lines and helping companies demonstrably shift gears on their sustainability objectives. But challenges remain, like the expense of conducting lifecycle analyses, industry acceptability, matching supply with demand for recycled products and perhaps the toughest, standardization.Join us on February 25, 2014 at 1pm ET to chat with Carpenter at #DesignIntent.
