Our Responsibility

We are committed to improving the quality of life for the current as well as future generations through efficient waste management services. This is our „Service for the Future“.

cities 1

55 % of the global population live in cities, which account for 60 to 80 % of energy consumption and at least 70 % of carbon emissions. These numbers will continue to grow. Global consumption of materials such as biomass, fossil fuels, metals and minerals is expected to double in the next forty years, while annual waste generation is projected to increase by 70 % by 2050. Annual waste generation from all economic activities in the EU amounts to 2.5 billion tons, or 5 tons per capita a year, with each citizen producing an average of nearly half a ton of municipal waste.

Transitioning Europe towards a circular economy, where waste is prevented and the value of waste remains in the economy as long as possible will require efforts from politics, business and every citizen alike.

Our philosophy of sustainability

We at FCC Environment CEE have been spearheading this transformation since 1988. From the beginning, the driving force of our business has been the recognition that waste is a valuable resource of energy and secondary raw materials.

Everything we do revolves around the commitment to providing innovative solutions for businesses and municipalities to prevent waste and promote circularity. At the same time, we empower citizens with information so that environmental action can be taken early on in the chain.

The cornerstones of our Corporate Social Responsibility Philosophy
