In celebration of Earth Day today, RIC is proud to announce that our organization has joined forces with the REMADE Institute, signing a pledge to accelerate the nation’s transition to a Circular Economy, increase the efficiency of resource use in manufacturing, reduce emissions, conserve resources, and create and sustain clean economy jobs.
Through our partnership with REMADE, RIC has engaged with other partners in the Institute in developing solutions that are capable of:
- Increasing the use of more than 40 million metric tons per year of recycled and remanufactured metals, plastics, paper, and electronic waste
- Reducing energy consumption by 1 Quad of energy
- Decreasing greenhouse gases by more than 50 million metric tons per year
- Creating 700,000 new jobs and training the workforce needed for those jobs
RIC remains committed to continuing the development of solutions that will enable the achievement of even greater benefits.
