The Colorado Association for Recycling is inviting businesses into the recycling conversation in Colorado. Almost every business in Colorado is involved in some way in recycling and materials management. Businesses use materials to make products and deliver services and all of these materials have a life cycle. How can businesses best manage materials not only for the benefit of the environment but also for the benefit of the bottom line? CAFR business councils will tackle material end-of-life issues by bringing together the business community to share ideas, solve problems and be the voice for businesses in the recycling and sustainability community in Colorado.
The business councils will bring all sizes and sectors of business together. In the council setting each sector will focus on materials that are the most relevant to that sector. However, the council will come together as a group at the beginning and end of each meeting for the purpose of crossover information and revealing potential synergies amongst sectors to solve for materials issues.
CAFR kicked off the first of two geographical business councils in April 2017 with the Colorado Springs Business Round Table. The second round table for Front Range businesses, originally scheduled for May 9, is postponed until July. The councils are not limited to members from those geographical areas. These two areas will simply be our first two host locations.
Businesses are invited to participate in the round table for the purpose of shaping the scope and direction of the business councils.
