A responsible and resilient business

Sustainability is at the heart of our strategy and we are committed to being a responsible business; building trust, transparency and accountability.

Our business is about bringing resources to life. We take our responsibilities towards the environment and wider communities seriously and aim to ensure that we are sustainable in everything we do.

We remain at the forefront of the UK resource sector, transforming waste into vital energy, high-quality recyclates and raw materials. Viridor continues to invest in essential infrastructure to meet our customers’ needs and work closely with them to deliver quality service and value for money.

At Viridor, it is important that we can contribute and ensure progress towards greater sustainability collectively and collaboratively with our clients, employees and supply chain partners.

By working together, we can achieve incredible things for the good of the planet, people and our own productivity. We aim to create healthier environments, happier communities and added value for all our stakeholders.

We have set 12 challenging sustainability targets for 2018/19 based on our key focus areas. These are aligned to the Business in the Community framework (workplace, marketplace, environment and community) and eight of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This report highlights our progress and performance over the last year (2017/18), against our objectives and targets.

Our report focuses on eight of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are the most material to us. This report shows our active role and contribution.
