Turning today’s waste into tomorrow’s resource
In order for our businesses and the environments in which they operate to thrive, pollution must be reduced, and natural resources must be protected. A circular economy, in which materials are recovered and re-used at the end of their life, helps to do this.
We aim to minimise our waste and to recycle, reuse, convert into energy or return safely to the environment as much of it as possible. Treating waste as a resource improves efficiency and reduces costs and our impact on the environment.
We are committed to turning today’s waste into a resource for tomorrow, contributing to the creation of a circular economy, where waste materials are no longer simply thrown away, but are retained and re-used as future resource.
Waste increases with the increase of the world’s population and its affluence. Landfills are reaching capacity. Governments are taxing waste. This increases business costs. The geographies in which we operate are at varying stages of development when it comes to facilities and systems for recovering and recycling waste. By reducing waste, we will reduce the costs of packaging and of waste management and disposal itself. Recyclable waste can generate revenue. As the circular economy starts to take shape, new markets are emerging for recyclable waste material that could form valuable new revenue streams for us.
