SAINT PAUL, Minn., April 22 2021 /3BL Media/ - In celebration of Earth Day, Antea Group 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.
REMADE Chief Executive Officer Nabil Nasr said the institute, a public-private partnership established by the U.S. Department of Energy, is pleased to partner with Antea Group to meet these goals.
“Together, Antea Group and REMADE are dedicated to accelerating the U.S.’s transition to a Circular Economy and creating a sustainable and competitive manufacturing future that makes the most efficient use of resources,” Nasr said. “By signing our Earth Day pledge, Antea Group has reconfirmed its commitment to continue increasing the use of recycled and remanufactured materials, reducing energy consumption, decreasing emissions, increasing the U.S.’s manufacturing competitiveness, securing our domestic supply chain, and creating clean economy jobs. We are proud to join forces with the entire Antea Group team.”
Through our partnership with REMADE, Antea Group 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; and creating 700,000 new jobs and training the workforce needed for those jobs.
As Circular Economy concepts continue to gain momentum, pushing companies to think beyond the current “take, make, dispose” model, Antea Group is proud to be at the forefront.
