Meet the Team

Ecoveritas operates a highly experienced team in compliance, sustainability and technology development.

Our mission is to make it easy for companies to understand their obligations, get compliant and to respond appropriately through reduction, substitution and recycling.

At Ecoveritas, we love numbers. But maybe not for the reason you would think. Many of our team’s backgrounds before venturing into environmental data collection and analysis range from the studies of classical languages, geography, physics, biology, radiation protection, economics, teaching, retail and foster caring.

We are happy to have a whole analytics and data team ready to make sense of that vast amount of data available. They allow us as a business and our customers to be clear-sighted and take the right packaging decisions based on facts instead of reaching conclusions based on preconceived ideas or subjective “gut feelings”.
