John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronic waste, discussed the continued and exponential growth of the electronics recycling industry and the international promise of urban mining at Houlihan Lokey’s 10th Annual Global Industrials Conference at the Marriott Marquis today.
Addressing an audience of investors and financial analysts seeking specific insights into the biggest trends among leading industrial sectors, Shegerian stressed the mounting demand for responsible recycling of electronics from job creation, global human rights, environmental, urban mining and data security perspectives. He also addressed and explained the long-range national and international potential of electronic recycling as a rapid growth industry designed to keep up with an increasingly rising need.
“It’s an honor and privilege to have been asked to present at Houlihan Lokey’s Global Industrials event and to discuss the growing demand and urgent need for electronic recycling before such an influential financial community audience,” said Shegerian. “The fastest growing sector of the world’s waste stream today is e-waste, and it is growing at an amazing rate. Responsible recycling – when done properly – is proving to be the only solution, which locks our industry into a steady growth mode for many decades to come. This is a terrific conference, and we are very proud to be presenting alongside a diverse collection of other organizations that are also the leaders in their respective fields.”
