Telford-based waste management and resource-led service provider, Reconomy, has reaffirmed its commitment to being an armed forces-friendly organisation by signing The Armed Forces Covenant.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge to acknowledge and understand that those who serve, or who have served in the armed forces, together with their families, should be treated with fairness and respect. Reconomy is proud to recognise the value that serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to both its business and the wider community. By signing the Covenant, Reconomy will support the employment of reservists and veterans along with their families.
This announcement is the latest activity being driven by Reconomy’s ground-breaking social value programme, RSVP, which supports the company’s objective to be the leading sustainable business in its sector and create a purposeful culture within the company.
Diane Crowe, Reconomy’s Head of Sustainability and Social Value, said: “As a growing business, we wish to ‘give back’ and contribute to society in a meaningful and significant way wherever possible. By signing the Armed Forces Covenant we pledge to do all we can to support ex-armed forces personnel that have made so many personal sacrifices in the defence of our country.”
