Sustainability expert Nancy Gillis spearheads the green team on E-Waste World Conference Advisory Board

Nancy Gillis, the chief executive officer of the Green Electronics Council (GEC), has joined the Advisory Board of E-Waste World Conference & Expo, completing the ‘magnificent seven’ in the world of WEEE and sustainable electronics.

Nancy has more than 20 years’ experience leveraging sustainability to increase competitiveness, reduce risk and foster innovation in both public and private sector organizations. Prior to joining the GEC, she was the global lead for Resilient and Responsible Supply Chains with Ernst & Young (EY) and managed sustainable procurement engagements for Fortune 100 companies.

She joined EY from the US General Services Administration (GSA), the US Federal Government’s procurement agency that oversees approximately US$45 billion of annual spend. At GSA, she served as the director of the Federal Supply Chain office, responsible for expanding the use of sustainability criteria and ecolabels in federal procurements.

GEC is a mission-driven 501c(4) non-profit that collaborates to achieve a world in which only sustainable IT products are designed, manufactured and purchased, hence she will provide invaluable insight and expertise for our Green & Sustainable Electronics stream. Founded initially to manage EPEAT, the leading global ecolabel for IT products, GEC advocates for sustainable IT by helping both manufacturers and large-scale purchasers to understand the challenges facing sustainable IT, commit to address those challenges and finally act to change internal, operational, manufacturing and procurement behaviors.

Nancy has a graduate degree in Communications Technology from Georgetown University.

The final addition to the Advisory Board will be announced in the coming days.

E-Waste World Conference & Expo will take place from Thursday 14 November to Friday 15 November at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt Messe, Germany. To register for this highly focused, solutions-driven event, please click here. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, please email
