Organizations are spending time and money to become more sustainable but they are not leveraging new software and web technologies to maximize their positive environmental impact. This panel will discuss three ways technology is making waste a resource. Topics discussed will include the use of new technologies to manage waste and resources like other parts of the organization are managed. Enabling technologies for more transparency and reporting to help to solve environmental problems and create a more efficient eco-system.
