Rubicon Global and Trucost Team Up to Provide Accurate Carbon Emissions Data from Waste

ATLANTA, Aug. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rubicon Global, the leading provider of cloud-based, sustainable waste and recycling solutions, has partnered with environmental data expert Trucost to provide its customers with accurate, accessible data on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their waste.

Rubicon is revolutionizing the waste and recycling industry by creating market incentives for organizations to recycle and empowering independent haulers to compete for business. Rubicon leverages its technology, sustainability and cost savings expertise to drive customer costs down, divert more waste from landfills, and give customers detailed insight into their spending, diversion and other key metrics. By partnering with Rubicon, companies are able to work toward long-term sustainability goals.

Rubicon has worked with Trucost to review and verify calculations of its customers’ GHG emissions. As a result, customers can have confidence that Rubicon is accurately measuring their monthly GHG emissions from waste sent to landfills and monthly GHG savings from recycling, composting or anaerobic digestion. Organizations can use that data for internal and external sustainability reporting, including corporate sustainability reports and pursuing zero-waste or other environmental certifications.

“Accessible data is essential for keeping waste out of landfills, yet the waste and recycling industry has never been transparent,” said David Rachelson, Rubicon’s Director of Sustainability. “Using Trucost’s industry-leading sustainability assurance services to affirm our calculations provides customers with the transparency they need in their waste and recycling programs. Our robust data analytics platform will now be even more valuable to customers as they set and achieve company-wide sustainability goals through efficient zero-waste and closed loop strategies.”

“Rubicon is leading the way in sustainable waste and recycling solutions, and our environmental data expertise adds even more value for Rubicon’s customers,” said Libby Bernick, Trucost Senior Vice President, North America. “The partnership enables companies everywhere to meet increasing marketplace, investor and regulatory pressure to disclose accurate data on greenhouse gas emissions.”
