We are committed to all three aspects of sustainability: environmental, social and economic.
This is not just important to Viridor, it is at the very core of our business and the services we provide to over a hundred local authorities and thousands of private sector customers across the UK.
The treatment of waste as a real resource is a vital contribution to cutting carbon emissions and reducing climate change impacts.
Our services are closely aligned to, and are increasingly helping to deliver, the waste hierarchy that is now enshrined in EU and UK waste policy.
Last year we transformed over two million tonnes of domestic and industrial and commercial recyclables into high-quality raw materials. In fact, around 50% of our profits now come from recovering value from waste.
In those cases where it isn’t economically viable or environmentally feasible to recycle, we are investing over £1billion in Energy from Waste facilities throughout the UK to generate much needed heat and power.
We strongly believe that our continued focus on all three aspects of sustainability, alongside the delivery of cost-effective and robust services to the highest professional standards, will enable us to provide an added- value solution for all our customers and stakeholders.
And we've only just begun...
