Sustainability Talks: A Shifting Focus on Climate Change

Over the years, Susan Robinson, Waste Management’s Senior Director of Sustainability and Policy, has shared insights and expert opinions on all things sustainability. Recently, Waste 360 asked her to pen a monthly column for their Sustainability Talks Newsletter – an opportunity for Susan to help folks think beyond waste and recycling.

Susan viewed this as a challenge to connect our industry to broader sustainability conversations.  In her January article “A Shifting Focus on Climate Change”, Susan explores the different attitudes about climate change that exist across the globe and why attitudes are shifting here in the U.S. From geographic advantages in natural resource availability to agricultural practices and natural disasters – Susan explores the factors that impact our ability to meet environmental goals and what this all means for the waste industry.
