Will You Soon Be Hiring A Sustainability Officer?

By:
28. August 2011

I recently received a press released announcing that Jad Darsey has been named director of sustainability and plastics for TricorBraun, one of North America’s largest suppliers of bottles, jars and other rigid packaging. Got me thinking. Will more processors be filling this kind of job in the years ahead. Seems likely, especially in the packaging field.

In the newly created post, Mr. Darsey will evaluate new packaging technology and assist TricorBraun’s customers with material choices and package designs that will enable them to improve their sustainability programs, the company said in a statement.

Interestingly Mr. Darsey has a background in chemistry, having graduated in 1999 from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Textile Chemistry.

TricorBraun has more than 40 locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Asia. The company’s primary focus is on packaging for personal care; cosmetics; healthcare; food and beverages; as well as industrial and household chemicals.
