Higher recycling rates in the entire value chain
It is essential to do right at the source. To care for the resources we have, we must identify every place that affects them. As mentioned before, recycling waste won’t by itself do the trick. To achieve a significantly higher degree of recycling, we must identify the resources, see their value, create markets for secondary material, and find new reuse and recycling processes.
We need to design better, waste less in the production line, and take care of much more material otherwise lost in production. For example, it’s smart to ensure your procurers demand the subcontractors to use more recycled raw material.
Being part of a sustainable economy builds your brand
A higher grade of recycling supports global initiatives towards a circular and sustainable economy. Decreasing the carbon dioxide footprint and lifting the waste hierarchy material will help a company’s brand communication and market offering.
As we recycle more, climate benefits will increase. Note that the actual climate benefit becomes more significant the more we can reuse and recycle, for example, in your business. A higher degree of reuse and recycling of materials brings more value for everyone.
Several gains and benefits are coming from recycling to a higher degree. These benefits include saving material, time, energy and having a less negative climate impact. By making sure your business is benefiting from a higher recycling rate, you also contribute to a more sustainable society.
