Turning Waste Products into Treasure featuring Joy Hicks

Supply Chain Now

August 31, 2022

Many large companies have individuals or teams who are responsible for sustainability, but, in the end, sustainability is everyone’s job. It is truly a cross-functional initiative.

Joy Hicks is the Senior Manager of Sustainability with the Home Depot. She and her team are responsible for everything from the products Home Depot sells in their stores to their operations. They make sure that the company is on the cutting edge of what needs to be done to do the right thing for the planet.

In this episode, part of the Reverse Logistics Series on Supply Chain Now, Scott Luton is joined by special co-host Tony Sciarrotta, Executive Director of The Reverse Logistics Association, to talk to Joy about what is at the top of Home Depot’s sustainability agenda.

  • Why consumers should be just as concerned about the chemicals present in their homes as they are the chemicals they consume
  • Materials formerly seen as ‘waste’ that Home Depot is using as the basis for other useful goods
  • How taking a multi-faceted approach to investing in sustainability can increase the program’s results
