New “Diversion-focused” Waste Management Company to Bring Sustainable Solutions to Businesses Nationwide

International Environmental Alliance (IEA)

Our goal for IEA is to set a new standard in sustainable waste management.

Furman Brothers, Inc. and The Boston Group today announced they have joined forces to launch International Environmental Alliance (IEA). Combining the deep industry experience of veteran waste and recycling leaders, International Environmental Alliance will offer premium, national and international, full service sustainable waste management, recycling and diversion services for any size or type of business.

“Our goal for IEA is to set a new standard in sustainable waste management,” said Aaron Furman, CEO of IEA and former long-time senior executive at Oakleaf Waste Management. “Other waste management companies talk the ‘green’ talk, but lack the experience, resources and knowledge to act on it. IEA is a diversion company, not a disposal company. We have a Chief Recycling Officer on our executive leadership team. We are committed to offering our clients a win-win waste management proposition by aligning what’s best for their businesses with what’s best for the environment.”

Partnering to launch IEA are top leaders in the waste management and recycling industry who came together to unite their experience in sustainability and diversion with expertise managing national commercial waste programs:

  • Jeff Klein and Kevin Kodzis of Boston Group and DC Environmental bring over 40-years combined experience at the innovative forefront of recycling and diversion.
  • Aaron Furman, formerly of Oakleaf Waste Management, brings over 20-years of senior leadership in national waste management and technology.

“More and more companies are realizing sustainability isn’t just a good idea – it’s a business imperative,” said Kevin Kodzis, IEA’s Chief Recycling Officer. “Environmental concerns, rising landfill costs and increasing regulations all make sustainable waste management a profitable advantage for companies. IEA will drive the waste management industry’s sustainable future.”

Together, IEA’s partners have developed four benchmarks through which the company will deliver the most forward reaching sustainable waste management solutions:

Superior National and International Waste Management Program
IEA’s extensive industry experience, asset-light management model, and vast network of vendors allow it to offer the highest quality comprehensive, customized waste management, recycling and diversion services to a national and international client base.

Leadership in Sustainability and Diversion
By continually implementing the most innovative, forward-reaching solutions in waste diversion and recycling, IEA will lead the waste management industry toward a greener, more sustainable future. IEA’s LEED-certified experts are trained to assess facilities and design waste management programs to help clients achieve the numerous LEED prerequisites and credits related to waste management and diversion.

Top Quality Customer Service
IEA’s foremost commitment is to providing top-quality, personalized customer service to every client – no matter how big or small. IEA helps businesses achieve and exceed their waste management and diversion goals, stay compliant with regulations, and spread the word about their sustainability achievements.

Focus on Client Business Success
IEA understands that fiscal responsibility + environmental sustainability = business opportunity. By comprehensively auditing and optimizing clients’ waste management programs using expertise in rightsizing, waste minimization, and diversion, IEA offers the highest quality sustainable service at the lowest cost.

“We look forward to helping businesses nationwide become greener, leaner, and more successful by building the most innovative, forward-reaching waste, recycling and diversion programs,” said Aaron Furman, CEO of IEA.
