Resource Efficiency: The Core of our Business

We see waste as a valuable source of raw materials and energy. The core of our business is to maximise the utilisation of waste. We contribute to reducing environmental burdens for future generations and help save natural resources.

Alongside the prevention and recycling of waste, we are able to recover renewable energy from non-hazardous waste collected through our business and municipal waste operations. Moreover, we minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfills by transforming it into valuable resources.
