Michael Rinaldi is the Sustainability Officer at DLL, a global provider of asset-based financial solutions in the Agriculture, Food, Healthcare, Clean Technology, Automotive, Transportation, Construction, Industrial, and Office Technology industries.
As Sustainability Officer, Michael manages the Sustainability Engagement Initiative to actively generate discussions with DLL's business partners on their current performance and ambitions in the areas of sustainable solutions, societal impact, and responsible business operations. In this role, he identifies and develops opportunities to collaborate with partners to implement new life cycle asset management (LCAM), used equipment financing, and servitization solutions.
