Please join the IGS North America chapter for this presentation prepared by Boyd Ramsey on the topic of the sustainability contributions of the geosynthetic industry. Geosynthetics make a great many positive contributions to our planet and its environment. This webinar/presentation gives an overview of the activities of our industry and some organizations, with interviews and discussions with industry participants including John Krause – Executive Director IGS, Jean-Louis Vangeluwe – Solmax, Dennis Grech – Geofabrics, Henning Hehrenberg – Naue , Sam Allen – TRI Environmental, Richard Bathurst – Royal Military College of Canada and Steve Thaxton – Owens Corning.
The IGS has been addressing sustainability through the efforts of the IGS Sustainability Committee. Geosynthetic materials make critical contributions, but as an industry, we can improve both our sustainability performance and our communication on the benefits of geosynthetics. This event highlights some of the things we are doing well and offers a summary of some of our industries future improvement goals. It should be noted that the opinions expressed in the event are those of Boyd Ramsey and the other participants, not the IGS or the respective committees and organizations.
