After more than a year of deliberation, the NERC Board has voted to amend the organization's vision and mission statements.
The refreshed vision statement is a world in which waste is minimized and natural resources are conserved.
In furtherance of this vision, its mission is to minimize waste, conserve natural resources, and advance a sustainable economy through facilitated collaboration and action.
NERC's vision statement was last revised in 2016, and the mission statement in 2014. Although updated only a few years ago, the opportunities and critical priorities for the sustainability and recycling communities have shifted significantly. To ensure that NERC remains a leader and positioned to affect change, the Board determined it was essential to consider its position in these communities and reflect its intended contributions to ensure a world in which waste is minimized and natural resources are conserved.
