TOM SZAKY

Tom Szaky is founder and CEO of TerraCycle, a global leader in collection and repurposing of complex waste streams. TerraCycle operates in 21 countries, working with some of the world’s largest brands, retailers and manufacturers to create national platforms to recycle products and packaging that currently go to landfill or incineration.

Through TerraCycle, Tom creates circular solutions for hundreds of difficult waste streams such as cigarette butts, dirty diapers and used chewing gum. TerraCycle operates the largest supply chain for ocean plastic in the world, partnering with companies to integrate this material into their packaging.

TerraCycle is the lead company in a new circular shopping platform called Loop that enables consumers to shop for household products in durable, reusable packaging. Launched in May 2019 in Paris, France and the mid-Atlantic and northeast U.S. with five new markets planned for 2020, Loop is a key step in helping to end the epidemic of waste that is caused by ‘single- use’ consumption.

Tom and TerraCycle have received hundreds of social, environmental and business awards and recognition from a range of organizations including the United Nations, World Economic Forum, Fortune Magazine, Time Magazine and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Tom is the author of four books, “Revolution in a Bottle” (2009), “Outsmart Waste” (2014), “Make Garbage Great” (2015) and “The Future of Packaging” (2019). Tom created, produced and starred in TerraCycle’s reality show, “Human Resources” which aired on Pivot from 2014-2016 and is syndicated in more than 20 foreign markets on Amazon and iTunes.

AMANDA RODEWALD

As both a professor in DNR and the Director of Conservation Science at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Amanda Rodewald works to generate, apply, and communicate science in ways that advance understanding of ecology and also support conservation. Her research seeks to understand how global change impacts ecosystems across multiple spatiotemporal scales and levels of biological organization and, as such, touches on a variety of sub-disciplines, including conservation biology, community ecology, landscape ecology, population demography, behavioral ecology, and ecological restoration. She tightly integrates her research and outreach efforts to inform policy and management, and as such, regularly interacts with government agencies, conservation organizations, and private landowners.

Shane Keough
CEO
WeGoFor

Shane Keough is an ex-athlete turned CEO of WeGoFor; a BCorp which developed and promotes sustainability programs that not only benefit shareholders, but also positively impacts our global environmental health. Shane's roots in sports began long before he was born. His grandfather, a scout for the St. Louis Cardinals, and his father, a pitcher for the Oakland A's and Japan's Hansin Tigers, created an opportunity for most of Shane's childhood to be spent around the game of baseball. In 2006 Shane followed in his family's footsteps and signed with the Oakland Athletics. He played four seasons in their minor-league system as an outfielder. During the 2010 season Shane was diagnosed with a torn patellar tendon; an injury that would require surgery. During his rehabilitation Shane created his first company, Doc Discover; a web-platform for patients to locate the best medical professionals for their condition. Shane wanted to create a search engine that highlighted the qualifications of a medical professional; not just their ability to market online. Through Doc Discover Shane’s passion for helping others was born. In 2013 Shane signed with LA Model Management; an opportunity that led him to star in two independent films. Although Shane enjoyed acting, it was the collaborative, team effort of skilled individuals working together towards a singular goal that began to inspire his next business venture. In 2016 Shane founded Solar Waste Reprocessing, LLC; a company aimed to maximize the potential energy of municipal waste. The company's focus soon shifted to agricultural waste; specifically recovering vital resources currently uncultivated, including soil-nutrients and water. Currently, Shane is working in the fields of fuel production, power generation, waste disposal, resource recovery, food production, and mobile technology. Shane’s mission is to show the world that what is good for business can also be great for the environment. Current Shane is developing programs through his company WeGoFor2 that solve societal and environmental issues through profitable business ventures that harness the power of inclusion, collaboration, empowerment, and habit change
