Additional Resources for Navigating the COVID-19 Pandemic (31 March Update)

March 31, 2020

i-SIGMA continues to be here as a resource to members during this time of evolving difficulty. Below are COVID-19 industry updates and opportunities for this week, which include two webinars, information on emergency small business loans, and vendor resources during this time, should you be in need.

Webinar Thursday – The Anticipated Impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak on Recycled Office Paper Value

The current pandemic is sending mixed signals about the future of recycled paper pricing. On one hand, paper products are flying off store shelves, China has resumed production, and international tariffs have been eased. On the other, some are predicting a recession, and everyone expects a long climb back to prosperity. To help understand how these factors will impact our members’ businesses, i-SIGMA has arranged for one of the foremost authorities on recycled paper consumption to discuss the near and long-term impact of the current pandemic on future recycled paper pricing.

Presented by Bill Moore, President of Moore & Associates, an international consulting firm that provides a range of strategic services and research to global organizations active in recycling and sustainability.
