The solid waste and recycling consulting firm Resource Recycling Systems (RSS), based in Ann Arbor, Mich., has announced Anne Johnson has joined the firm as vice president and senior consultant. She will lead the company’s development of a new Global Corporate Sustainability practice.
Johnson joins RRS from the nonprofit firm GreenBlue, where she led the Sustainable Packaging Coalition for more than seven years. Johnson has more than 15 years in the practice of applied sustainability and design, and brings detailed knowledge of packaging and materials, sustainable design and recovery, and applied life cycle management methodologies.
RRS CEO Jim Frey says Johnson’s role is part of a natural extension for RRS’s collaborative work in “greening” the supply chain with clients like the Carton Council of North America and their Carton Recycling Access Initiative, AMERIPEN’s Recovery Work Group and the Food Service Packaging Institute’s Paper Recovery Alliance and Plastics Recovery Group.
“We see an expanded sustainability practice as a powerful opportunity to extend the considerable technical and management advisory skills of RRS with demonstrated return on investment for our clients into the global corporate sustainability sector with Anne’s leadership.”
