BIR Annual Report 2019: Learn from the past in planning for the future
The Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) has released its 2019 Annual Report that highlights key recycling industry developments and data as well as the organization’s activities on behalf of its membership. The report is launched ahead of BIR’s first virtual General Assembly, which will be held at the end of June 2020 following our series of online commodity sessions aimed at keeping the BIR membership and wider recycling community informed during this period of uncertain economic developments and challenges.
In a modern and vibrant layout, the publication features reports from the BIR President, Director General and Treasurer, and provides facts and figures relating to BIR’s eight commodity divisions and committees. It also highlights the main achievements and reflections of the organization’s cross-commodity bodies - the International Environment Council and the International Trade Council - as well as activity reports from the special committees dealing with organizational matters within BIR.
The 2019 Annual Report also confirms that BIR’s membership has remained stable to slightly higher, uniting around 760 members in over 70 countries.
