TerraCycle Joins Suppliers Partnership for the Environment

Recycling Company TerraCycle has joined a collaboration among automakers, suppliers and the U.S. EPA.

TerraCycle, a New Jersey-based international recycling company that specializes in recycling the unrecyclable, announced its admittance into the Suppliers Partnership for the Environment (SP). TerraCycle joined the organization at the Supplier Partnership’s second quarter meeting of 2019.

The Suppliers Partnership was established with the purpose of advancing environmental sustainability through the automotive supply chain. SP functions as a forum for global automotive manufacturers, their large and small suppliers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other government entities from around the world to meet and address focus issues. These include: biodiversity preservation, energy efficiency, health, safety, water usage and the use of both eco-friendly materials and environmentally sound supply chain management. Membership is open to companies that supply goods or services to an automotive manufacturer or parts supplier.

“We’re proud to welcome TerraCycle to the Supplier Partnership. TerraCycle is a business with an Earth-friendly mission that dovetails nicely with the Suppliers Partnership’s sustainability initiatives,” said Kellen Mahoney, program director of SP, in a statement. “We look forward to working with TerraCycle to find new, innovative ways to further preserve our natural resources.”

SP membership not only helps companies meet their economic goals by facilitating a collaborative working relationship between the private and public sectors but also aids them in achieving their ambition of environmental preservation. The engagement of the EPA makes this collaboration even more unique since members are provided with topics for special projects, information, approaches and tools to realize common environmental objectives.
