Our Commitment to Sustainability

 

Sustainability is core to Reconomy’s overall business strategy, and we believe this makes us a better company to work for, to do business with and to invest in.

 Environmental sustainability has been part of Reconomy’s business strategy since the company’s inception in 1994. By working closely with our clients, we help them make better, more informed waste management choices. Likewise, we are acutely aware of the greater emphasis being placed on the social responsibilities of businesses and the lasting impact they can have on communities.

 For this reason, last year Reconomy relaunched its sustainability strategy, dividing it into three core values, each with its own set of objectives:

  1.  Social value: Through our unique position within the waste industry, we are working with customers, suppliers and partners to invest in and build community relationships, reduce the skills gap and assist with overcoming barriers to employment.
  2.  Environmental value: We continually seek to reduce our impact on the environment and lead the waste industry by working with clients and suppliers to develop ‘circular solutions’, reducing materials used and increasing the value of materials to be disposed of.
  3.  Business value: We work with suppliers, voluntary groups, community social enterprises and SMEs (small to medium-sized enterprises) to develop innovations that go beyond waste compliance to deliver lasting changes.

 

Establishing and implementing this clear sustainability strategy delivers benefits for us, our customers and suppliers, as well as the wider community.
