Mathy Stanislaus on what it will take to make waste a climate issue

Read the full story in WasteDive.

Few people are as plugged in to the international waste and recycling conversation as Mathy Stanislaus.

Now a circular economy fellow at the World Resources Institute, Stanislaus previously spent nearly eight years as assistant administrator of the EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management. During that time, he was credited with pushing the sustainable materials management approach, adopting a 50% food waste reduction goal and representing the U.S. during G7 climate talks, among other accomplishments.

Since the end of the Obama administration, Stanislaus has remained engaged in these issues for WRI and is also helping establish the new Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy as senior policy advisor to the World Economic Forum.

Stanislaus delivered a complex and thought-provoking keynote talk at WASTECON in Nashville, Tennessee last week. Waste Dive spoke to him afterward, the first time since he left the EPA in 2016, to learn more.
