Sustainable Strategies: ERI’s Vision Reinforced with New Chief Officer

Electronics recycler ERI, located in Fresno, California, has appointed David Hirschler as its first chief sustainability officer.

Hirschler, who held the position of senior director of sustainability and legislative compliance at ERI in his previous role, played a pivotal role in engaging with legislators and government agencies. In this capacity, he actively collaborated on various initiatives, overseeing collection programs aimed at responsibly managing electronic waste. His responsibilities extended to involvement in circularity projects, wherein he contributed to the development and implementation of strategies that promote a more sustainable and circular economy.

Hirschler also showed initiative in monitoring and promoting ERI’s internal sustainability and waste reduction goals. His efforts went beyond mere oversight, as he actively promoted and championed the adoption of practices that align with the company’s commitment to environmental stewardship. His diverse responsibilities included close coordination with stakeholders both inside and outside the company, which cemented his standing as a pivotal figure in furthering ERI’s sustainability goals.

 John Shegerian (ERI Chairman and CEO) said: “We’re excited to name David our chief sustainability officer, a title that is well-earned and fitting for someone with such a strong track record and set of skills in the space,”

 “With his passion for–and deep understanding of–sustainability issues, it makes perfect sense to elevate David’s already critical role to the next level of stewardship to benefit not only ERI, but the planet.”

Hirschler was the director of waste prevention for the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) before coming to work at ERI in 2014. In addition, Hirschler is on the board of directors of Fabscrap, a nonprofit organization that recycles and reuses commercial textiles.

Hirschler said: “It’s truly an honor to accept this leadership role at ERI, where we can continue to set benchmarks of sustainability excellence, By elevating this role into the C-suite, ERI is truly demonstrating its commitment to sustainability.”
