SAN DIEGO, Jul. 31 /CSRwire/ - ECOR, the global leader in sustainable materials and solutions for the circular economy, today announced that Hazel Henderson, a world renowned economic analyst, author and the pioneer of sustainable ethical finance, has joined its Advisory Board.
The Board will influence ECOR’s long-term circular economy and sustainable product vision and actively advance best practices with industry leaders to integrate ECOR-based materials and products into their supply chain.
“Hazel brings deep knowledge of sustainable development and a global network of industry leaders, innovators and financiers that recognize the importance of creating measurable, scalable and immediate environmental impact, and recognize the critical importance of the circular economy,” said Jay Potter, CoFounder of ECOR. “Hazel will be a dynamic and strong asset in guiding our Advisory Board members as they exchange ideas, advocate for ECOR among their communities, and share experiences in navigating evolving and global market trends related to a circular economy.”
Hazel is the Founder of Ethical Markets and produced the Ethical Markets television series on green and socially responsible investing. She is author of 9 books, including “Mapping the Global Transition to the Solar Age“, The Green Transition Scoreboard®, and 2017 report on “Deepening Green Finance.”
Henderson said, “I’m excited to join the ECOR Advisory Board, because the company is revolutionizing the recycling industry and is helping name brands and smart cities save money, by designing more sustainable ECOR-based products, and re-using their own waste to make ECOR, instead of traditional wood-based materials that require cutting down trees,” “Consumers everywhere are demanding more sustainability from brands and government, and ECOR is leading the way in empowering brands to use cradle-to-cradle design principles and engage in the circular economy, in a manner which reduces costs and wastes, and grows their businesses.”
The ECOR product line of sustainable materials are designed to be made from 100% recycled content, certified cradle-to-cradle, 100% bio-based, recyclable, compostable and to provide sustainable and healthy material solutions for the architectural, furniture, print and packaging industries. The ECOR technology is an innovative high-value recycling process designed to increase the types of recyclable waste, decrease dependence on wood-based products and materials, and to enable the design principles of a circular economy for complete recyclability.
