Our core values
Reconomy has a key role in facilitating the best outcomes for our customers’ resources and waste materials. Through our many years of waste management knowledge and expertise, we are well placed to advise our clients on how to maximise resource usage, but it is critical that we practise what we preach.
Likewise, we are also acutely aware of the greater emphasis being placed on the social responsibilities of businesses and the lasting impact they can have on their local communities. For this reason, we have created a sustainability strategy based upon three core values:

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.

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.
