Green Earth Strategy
Governments around the world are taking rapid action to reduce single-use items, including single-use plastics, industrial and consumer waste, and packaging waste. The concept of a circular economy is gathering steam. A circular economy envisions “gradually decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and designing waste out of the system."
At Green Earth Strategy, we advise industry, cities and government on how to create and maintain practical and effective circular economy and waste management strategies with staying power.
Green Earth Strategy delivers solutions with an acute sense of the legal context and governance frameworks in which policies and innovation operate. Our private sector experience allows businesses to seamlessly comply and empowers them to thrive.
Our current clients include public and private sector entities taking action in the shifting landscape of single-use items reduction, extended producer responsibility transitions, and building long-lasting and effective circular economy models.
Green Earth Strategy is led by Denisa Mertiri.
