Cedric Tetzel has been the Merchandise Manager for Computers and related products for the past 22 years at London Drugs Limited.
He is part of a company-wide team that has helped London Drugs offer numerous take back programs covering computers and electronics to smoke detectors and packaging; divert 93% of its waste from landfill; and, using carefully vetted processors, recycle over 5 tonnes of material annually.
As the leader of the foreign sourcing program for computer products, Cedric has created an ongoing program using sourcing criteria that views suppliers’ environmental responsibility and product safety under the same lens used to evaluate their products’ functions and designs and insists on meeting higher environmental standards.
Cedric also served as a Director of the Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA) and served as Chair of the Electronics Recycling Program’s Industry Council for 8 years.
Last year, Cedric was honored with a Canada Clean 50 award recognizing his contribution to the sustainability efforts by both London Drugs and ARMA.
