Building a circular economy

We are contributing to a sustainable future built around a circular economy; educating our customers, government and the wider public to use materials responsibly and re-using as much as possible. We are making significant investments in our recycling capabilities as well as collaborating in partnership with established, expert operators, to build the energy from waste (EfW) infrastructure that the UK needs to manage waste sustainably.

Tackling climate change 

Climate change is a global emergency that requires action now. Our services deliver carbon reductions for waste producers. Decarbonisation means growing our services, whilst reducing our carbon footprint and maximising carbon savings wherever we can, for ourselves and our customers.

We are focusing our efforts on the areas where we can make a big impact, such as diverting even more general waste away from landfill into recycling and recovery, improving collection route densities and phasing out fossil-fuelled collection vehicles. Our aim is to cut our emissions by a further 50% by 2030, as we progress towards net carbon neutrality, in line with UK government targets.

Caring for our people, supporting our communities

Our people deliver a vital service to our customers and ensure our business runs safely and efficiently.

We are leaders within our industry in our approach to health, safety and wellbeing. We are committed to keeping our people and the public safe by ensuring safety is firmly embedded within our culture and championed at all levels. We care about employee wellbeing and work-life balance and see our people as our best ambassadors and business advocates.

We are proud to ‘give something back’ to the community, whether that be through local initiatives, such as employee volunteering or fundraising activities or through broader programmes such as Biffa’s proud partnership with the charity, WasteAid.

We are also committed to continuing to tackle Modern Slavery throughout our supply chain and are already leading the way in our industry on this important topic.

We recognise that there is always more we can do and that’s why we have targets in place to help us prioritise our areas of focus.
