BIR creates corona crisis coordination team

The Bureau of International Recycling has set up a special COVID-19 crisis coordination team to harmonise actions and response with regards to the pandemic’s impact on the global recycling industry.

The team will operate under the leadership of BIR president Tom Bird and is composed of representatives of BIR national member associations and of members of the BIR ambassadors committee, representing countries, regions and specific commodities.

‘The main goal is to create a platform for quick exchange of information that is important and of common interest to BIR and its members,’ the world recycling organisation reports. The crisis team is intended to mainly cover the regulatory environment, but can also relate to the business environment and markets or highlight best practices as a reference for other associations.

Any relevant information stemming from the team’s virtual meetings will be shared with the BIR membership.
