How ESG, Emerging Pollutants and New Regulations are Changing the Face of Landfill Design and Operation

The majority of generated waste in North America still goes to landfills, making them a critical piece of the waste management infrastructure. And a variety of environmental, social and regulatory drivers are changing the way landfills are designed, developed and operated.

Plus, heightened attention to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), emerging pollutants such as PFAS, staffing and supply challenges, as well as more stringent regulations have caused company leaders to challenge the status quo. While these issues present challenges, there are also opportunities. Renewable energy and sequestration of carbon and other pollutants are shaping the role of landfills in Society for decades to come. Hear Jim’s perspective on these timely topics and more.
