ATLANTA, Aug. 15, 2018 – Rubicon Global, a leader in providing waste, recycling, and smart city solutions to businesses and governments, today announced it has teamed with Wharton’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership and Goodr to recognize the best sustainable business leaders that are “Slimming down” on waste at their respective organizations.

“We continue to be inspired by companies that are taking measurable steps to solving waste reduction challenges with circular economy best practices, like the RUBICONMethod which gives companies a step by step guide to achieving successful recycling and waste reduction,” said David Rachelson, Vice President, Sustainability for Rubicon Global.

“We look forward to collaborating with Wharton and Goodr to help recognize companies that are driving the effort to reduce waste, implement recycling programs or kick-off sustainable material management programs that return revenue and attract purpose minded customers.”

“The foundational elements of Goodr are trying to address the food supply chain problems so that wasted food may instead go to the stomachs of the food insecure, so this Waste Fit Champion contest fits in perfectly with the mission of our company, and we could not be more proud to be working with Rubicon and Wharton on this project.”

The submission process for Waste Fit Champions will begin on August 15 and continue through September 30.
