Electronic Recyclers CEO joins sustainable electronics panel

Electronic Recyclers International : 09 March, 2009  (Company News)
Global forum to discuss the future of electronics recycling in the context of sustainable electronics
John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI) will discuss the responsible recycling of "e-waste" and the urgent importance of sustainable technology in general at the ATHGO (Alliance Toward Harnessing Global Opportunities) 6th Annual Global Forum at UCLA, "Global Green Technology Forum" tomorrow.

Joining an esteemed panel of leading environmental academics, scientists and technology leaders from all over the world, Shegerian will speak of the mounting global environmental problems caused by the glut of our nation's e-waste and explain the long-range international potential of electronic recycling as a concept and as an industry.

"John Shegerian and his team at ERI are true champions for the environment," said Armen Orujyan, PhD, ATHGO International's Founder and President. "Going away from the conventional methodology, John acts today and speaks of the clean, healthy, and wasteless future. Our young participants need to meet and hear more people like John and less of today's rhetoric of future actions. The forum will benefit tremendously from the presence of such a reputable and environmentally friendly corporation such as the ERI."

ATHGO's Global Forum at UCLA will bring together influential government representatives, scientists, diplomats, experts and corporate executives into an arena with promising young people to showcase their successful sustainability practices and highlight innovations and new ground-breaking business models and financing methods that effectively address the development of renewable energy sources.

The forum is set to encourage young people to get engaged in, develop, and propose new sustainability and renewable energy initiatives in creative and cordial environment. Each participant will have an opportunity to engage corporate and public decision-makers and his/her peers while drafting group and individual innovative solutions to address global environmental and alternative energy challenges.

"It's a great honour to have been asked to join ATHGO at UCLA and discuss the urgency of electronic waste alongside such a globally influential group," said Shegerian. "Electronic waste is certainly a challenge with dramatic global environmental and human rights implications, but with very real solutions. I applaud ATHGO and its attempts to bring the elite minds of the world together to discuss these issues before our next generation of decision makers. The 'Green Revolution' is here to stay - permanently. And we are proud to be a part of it."
