Isabelle Faucher appointed as new managing director for the Carton Council of Canada.
Quebec City—The Carton Council of Canada (CCC) has announced the appointment of Isabelle Faucher as its new managing director.
Building on the progress CCC has made in helping accelerate carton recovery and recycling rates since its inception five years ago, the addition of a dedicated and experienced managing director demonstrates its commitment to further strengthen its presence and results in Canada.
Previously with Reclay StewardEdge, Faucher is expected to draw on her extensive expertise and experience in sustainable development, waste management and extended producer responsibility.
“The choice of Isabelle Faucher as managing director was a natural one, as she has been an advocate and supporter of ours since 2009. Fluently bilingual, she understands the particularities of each province and has a well-established network of contacts among stakeholders in the value chain,” states CCC vice-president governmental affairs Élisabeth Comere.
“(Isabelle) will become a highly visible ambassador for carton recycling, and her expertise will guide the mission of CCC,” she states.
CCC is strengthening its management team to help achieve its goal of increasing carton recycling in Canada. The managing director will further enhance CCC’s efforts to drive collaboration among key stakeholders that can effectively grow carton recycling, ensure adequate legislation and promote greater understanding of carton recycling throughout the value chain.
“The process is a lengthy one, and the involvement of every player is essential to finding sustainable solutions for the future. We need to build engagement and drive collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders, which I am fully committed to do. Cartons are an environmentally-friendly choice, and I look forward to the stimulating challenge of sharing this message,” says Faucher.
The Carton Council is composed of the leading carton manufacturing companies in Canada, including Elopak, Evergreen Packaging, SIG Combibloc and Tetra Pak. Formed in 2010, the Carton Council works to deliver long-term collaborative solutions in order to divert valuable cartons from the landfill. Through a united effort, the Carton Council is committed to raising awareness, promoting best practices and ensuring adequate policy measures with the continual goal to increase carton recycling.
