Sustainability is central to our business strategy. It drives the way we operate and what we set out to achieve with our customers.
Our core values
Sustainability is fast becoming a critical point of focus for businesses, including many globally recognised brands. It is also increasingly recognised as a key purchasing incentive for consumers.
Reconomy works with businesses of all sizes to develop practical and cost-effective sustainability strategies, which deliver substantial and long-lasting value. However, it is of critical importance to us that we practice what we preach, which is why we have developed our own strategy to strive for our sustainability ambitions.
Our sustainability strategy has three core values, enabling us to deliver against Social, Environmental, and Business objectives.
0% of Reconomy's spend is with SME suppliers
0 hours of volunteering activities
£0m of pure social value delivered
0% renewable energy at Reconomy's head office
0% reduction in carbon intensity against turnover
0% of all waste managed diverted from landfill
0 supplier audits completed
Average of 0 internal promotions per month in 2020
A total of 0 hours of mental health support
Our approach to achieving our sustainability goals
Establishing and implementing a clear sustainability strategy delivers benefits for our employees, our clients and the wider communities we operate in.
Better procurement and the management of supplier relationships is fundamental to our success. When we are involved in the early phases of a project or mobilisation, we can more easily influence client behaviours to enable better sustainable decision-making that improves overall outcomes.Find out more about Zero Waste

Now we’ve told you about our relationship to sustainability, let us take you on a journey of exploration, delving into organisations in a host of sectors and looking at their approach to being more environmentally friendly businesses. Using Corporate Knights’ Top 100 Most Sustainable Companies and YouGov’s top businesses in terms of public perception, we created a list of 157 companies across 13 sectors.
We then cross-referenced this list with business’ individual strategies and information from social media to discover who is leading the conversation in regard to sustainability.
