We want to lead the industry in recycling and waste. It is our ambition to increase recyclability to its maximum threshold and to become a zero-to-waste operation.

We will increase our use of recycled material to the maximum level permitted by existing standards. Several of our sites are already 0 waste to landfill.

Plastic is a flexible material that is essential to our lives and plays a critical role in sustainable infrastructure – but it must be used in the right way. For too long and by too many, plastic has been discarded, polluting our earth and waterways.

We take plastic destined for landfill and recycle it to create long-lasting infrastructure for construction, civil water management, rainwater solutions and other critical components of the built environment. It is just one part of our commitment to creating a more circular economy. Currently 46% of our processed polymer comes from recycled sources, but our ambition is to reach 62% as existing standards allow.

We are also working with partners to help shape the regulatory agenda to enable more recycling to be used in innovative ways; but our ambition doesn’t stop there. We’re researching new sustainable materials to gain a greater understanding of the plastics recycling industry, its supply chain and technology to identify the carbon impacts of the materials and processes we use.

Zero waste

We’re on our way to becoming a zero-to-waste operation with Genuit Group a signatory of Operation Clean Sweep (OCS), committing its sites to ensuring zero plastic pellet, flake, and powder loss into the environment.

Packaging, whether wood, metal or plastic is also recycled at many of our sites, with targets under review for recycling of these major packaging groups.
