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.
In her February article, “How Might We?”, Susan shares insights from a 3-day course called Leadership for Sustainability that explores the need for systems design that focuses on the how, what, and why when it comes to sustainability and how the waste and recycling industry can learn from this type of systems thinking. By asking questions such as:
- Are we solving for the right problems?
- Do we need to reframe problems in order to look at solutions differently to effect change?
- Are we considering the broader Environmental-Social-Governance issues that we know are so important to the healthy future of our businesses?
Susan hopes industry leaders will be able to identify opportunities for far-reaching impact and use systems thinking to create real, sustainable difference. To learn more and discover more Sustainability Talks, please visit: https://www.waste360.com/sustainability/how-might-we
