The supplier of high-performance material solutions Texon International Group Ltd., Hong Kong/China, has strengthened its commitment to becoming a zero waste organization by 2025 by raising responsibility for sustainability to director level. Boyd Mulder, who recently joined the Texon Management Team as Group Director for New Product Development & Innovation (NPDI), is now in charge of driving sustainability throughout the entire organization. In his new role, Mulder will have the task of seamlessly embedding sustainability throughout Texon’s value chain and its entire portfolio of material solutions.
Over the next 5 years, Texon will attempt to reduce its carbon footprint by 50%; cut the use of virgin materials by 50%; ensure that 90% of waste is recyclable or reusable; and reduce water usage and waste by 20%. To help deliver these goals, Mulder will lead the global execution of the company’s strategic roadmap for its product and marketing organization. As such, he will work across all Texon locations worldwide but will spend most of his time at the company’s manufacturing facility in Skelton/UK.
Previously, Mulder worked at electronics giant Philips NV, Amsterdam/Netherlands, in senior executive roles for global and regional businesses across 3 continents – before running his own business management consultancy in Hong Kong.
