Senior Vice President, Legal & Sustainability, Celestica

Robert is the driving force behind sustainability at Celestica, pushing the company to become the first in its core competitor group to secure and publish science-based targets for emission reductions, aiming to reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 30% by 2025 and Scope 3 emissions by 10%. Robert also secured funding that enabled Celestica to meet their 2014 targets by 2020 through a combination of energy saving measures, renewable energy installation, obtaining renewable energy from other providers, and investing in equipment that reduces the energy consumption of their operations. In addition to reducing their energy impact, Celestica has achieved over 90% waste diversion rates in their global operations.
