‘We are delighted to welcome Bruno Bruins to our team. His extensive expertise and fresh perspectives on strategy, sustainability and innovation are invaluable for our strategy and ambition to grow as a leader in recycling and producing circular materials with low CO2 emissions,’ says Otto de Bont, CEO Renewi.

‘It’s an exciting opportunity to work on the circular economy. To speak out and act in favour of the development of waste-to-product is a great challenge. A sustainable society is important for everyone; I look forward to playing an inspiring role in this with Renewi,’ Bruno Bruins says.
