Helping Companies Comply With 7,000 Regulations In The Cheapest And Most Sustainable Way
Author: Anne Field
Retailers, manufacturers and brands face a myriad of regulations about how to handle and dispose of millions of potentially hazardous consumer products, from bathroom cleansers to nail polish—about 7,000 in all. Those rules determine, among other things, whether, for example, an item can be recycled and, ultimately, how expensive a company’s supply chain activities are. Plus, many companies end up sending products to be incinerated, the better to avoid the possibility of paying costly fines for making the wrong move. That’s the problem Smar Sorting addresses. Founded in 2015, its platform uses data and computational algorithms to allow manufacturers and retailers to determine the potential hazards of environmentally sensitive and regulated consumer products, allowing them to make, market and dispose of their wares more efficiently and sustainably.
