The subjects of sustainability and conserving natural resources are the central features of our company philosophy and directly influence all of REMONDIS' business activities. In over 30 countries all around the world, we promote and advance the efforts being made to sustainably improve living conditions. Environmental, economic and social responsibilities are all very closely entwined.
You can tell just how important resource conservation is to us as we have dedicated a whole website to this subject. This website illustrates just how sustainable our company is and also explains what we are doing to make society more aware of issues such as recycling, environmental protection and resource conservation. Moreover, it is full of general facts about sustainability and sustainable development – some of which are presented as downloadable infographics.
REMONDIS’ Lippe Plant is the focal point and the hub of our recycling activities. Each and every day, the people working here look for new solutions and new products that can help conserve our planet’s natural resources and protect the environment. In fact, these activities at the Lippe Plant help reduce carbon emissions by 466,000 tonnes every year. A further positive outcome of cutting CO2 and preserving natural resources: an official award. In 2016, KlimaExpo.NRW – an initiative of the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia – named the recycling activities at the Lippe Plant in Lünen as one of the twelve best pioneering projects.
If the drive towards greater sustainability is to be a success, then everyone has to join in. Which is why all our industrial, commercial and hotel customers across Germany have the option of being presented with our special Sustainability Certificate. This document provides detailed proof of how our treatment of their waste and residual materials cut their greenhouse gas emissions and reduce their consumption of primary raw materials and energy. A unique way of adding value to their business – and a unique offer across the whole of the recycling sector. The whole of the chain of services provided by REMONDIS is taken into account in the analysis – from the collection of the waste, to the transport, sorting and treatment, to the recycling of each fraction.
The Sustainability Certificate is based on the DIN EN ISO 14040 life cycle assessment and was developed together with the independent Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety, and Energy Technology UMSICHT. An example (PDF) of our Sustainability Certificate
In 2016, REMONDIS was presented with the GreenTec Award – Germany’s most prestigious environmental prize – in recognition of our innovative and sustainable efforts to conserve and recover the raw material phosphorus, a substance that is vital for all living organisms. We won the award for our patented TetraPhos® process, which we developed ourselves and enables phosphorus to be recovered from sewage sludge ash. All in all, a great endorsement of our work and one that will spur us on to develop further projects. At the end of the day, sustainable development can only flourish if new ideas are continually being found to further protect our environment and natural resources. We are happy to step up to the mark. Every single day. Working for the future.
