In memory of Carlos Martínez Orgado

ACR+ is sorry to inform you about the passing of close friend and collaborator Carlos Martínez Orgado. Carlos Martínez Orgado was Honorary President of the Circular Economy Foundation, one of the Spanish members of ACR+, and member of the ACR+ Administration Board. 

Carlos Martínez Orgado had a wealth of experience which was always connected to the environment and directed various entities related to waste management and making the most of resources.

Amongst other posts, he held the presidency for the Institute for Resource sustainability (el Instituto para la Sostenibilidad de los Recursos (ISR)) and was the representative for the Industrial Ministry in the European Forum for Recycling. His knowledge of the sector in other countries also led him to participate in different working groups of the European Commission and as a result participate in a large number of meetings, congresses, seminars and conferences in both the public and private arena and on the national and international stage. Most recently, he was preparing the upcoming international conference “Now, the Circular Economy”.

ACR+ would like to thank him for his work and commitment. Our thoughts are with his family and his foundation. The ACR+ team were honoured to work with him and he will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.
