Our responsibilities

Values and responsibility

We are in the business of environmental services. To us, environmental responsibility and sustainable development are not simply a corporate strategy; they are also our livelihood.

Through initiatives in the workplace, marketplace, community and environment, our goal is to transform attitudes towards waste – and turn waste into a resource.

Our company-wide efforts have been rewarded with a Platinum rating in the BitC Corporate Responsibility Index, which we are delighted to retain through 2013.

We received a Big Tick in the 2013 BitC National Awards, within the Workplace Talent and Skills categories. We also retain our Big Tick in the Climate Change category.
