Andrew is the Chief Executive Officer of EMR (European Metal Recycling), one of the world’s leading metal recyclers.
EMR invests heavily to develop new technologies as part of its quest to be the global leader in the provision of sustainable materials. The metal and plastic it recovers every year contributes to the saving of more than ten million tonnes of CO2 compared to using virgin materials.
Andrew has been with EMR for over eight years, during which time he has been responsible for the operations function. He has spearheaded a number of initiatives within the business, which includes the implementation of a UK-wide responsible business programme that supports the communities that are close to its sites.
Prior to joining EMR, Andrew held several professional management posts across six industry sectors, including waste management, manufacturing, construction and property development.
Andrew is looking forward to making a difference as the Waste to Wealth Champion for metals and believes that, by helping customers to deliver the maximum value from their waste streams, recycling rates will improve.
