Ionut Georgescu, CEO, FEPRA International, joins BR’s re:FOCUS on eCommerce, Retail & Logistics, which will take place in an online format on February 10, 2021.
Ionut Georgescu is the CEO of FEPRA International, a company that takes over the packaging responsibility obligations from producers and importers that introduce packaging and packaging waste on the Romanian market, in order to fulfil their legal obligations for recycling and recovery.
FEPRA International has recently joined the UN Global Compact, the largest civic initiative in the world, an action through which the company committed to taking responsible business actions and support the work in solving some of the most pressing societal issues, starting from the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and climate change.
“Being one of the main companies in the sector of recycling and recovery of packaging waste in Romania, we have set the goal to improve our business policies, from year to year, through sustainable mechanisms that have a positive impact on the environment. Our priority actions have always been to develop practices that really help to change individual behaviours, regardless of ethnicity, age, and geographical location, when it concerns separate packaging waste collection and environmental education. We have applied the same practices by encouraging gender equality – through support for women to join our company, or in the effort to reduce our carbon footprint – by implementing a digital and transparent reporting system. In other words, through our activity, we try to maintain a balance between the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social, and environmental. Therefore, we look forward to joining the UN Global Compact Initiative, as our work will be under the umbrella of an international mechanism that has the ability to guide us in our efforts to create a union between man and the environment, but also to credit our work, as we are doing what we know best in this field”, said Ionuț Georgescu on the occasion.
Ionut Georgescu will be part of the second panel at BR’s re:FOCUS on eCommerce, Retail & Logistics, titled eCommerce and the Digital Transformation of Retail: What Drives the Accelerated Evolution of eCommerce, where he will focus on the topic of sustainability in business and why change is needed now.
