Tony Schifano’s path to starting Antos Environmental began in the 1980s, when social and environmental concerns met at a crossroads, sparking a very serious medical-waste disposal debate. Antos helps hospitals, healthcare systems and other organizations elevate their organizational performance by reducing their carbon footprint.
“What drives me to do this is my passion for the environment,” Schifano says. “If you think about how many landfills we have across the United States, it’s an overwhelming thought. When I was born, there were 2 billion people on the planet. Today there are 7 billion. What are we going to do? We have to stop throwing things away.”
