From Industrial Waste to the Front Line of Sustainability: Recycling Pioneer - Ishizaka Noriko
Industrial waste processing firm CEO Ishizaka Noriko is changing the image of her sector. Transforming waste into resources with an industry-leading recycle rate of over 98% has made her an opinion leader in the march towards a circular economy. She's also embracing digital transformation through the introduction of waste-sorting robots and IT solutions, and the green revolution, with a woodland regeneration initiative that has transformed a former wasteland into an oasis for the general public.
