Enva publishes Sustainability Report
3 Dec 2020 |
One of the UK and Ireland’s leading resource recovery companies, Enva, has published its 2020 Sustainability Report
The report sets out how Enva sees its role in meeting two of the major challenges of our time - the pressure on our finite and dwindling natural resources and the difficult pathway to Net Zero CO2.
Highlights from the report include:
- 1.3 million tonnes of waste given a ‘second life’ as materials or products
- Avoidance of 318,000 tonnes of CO2 through production and sale of waste-derived products and materials
- 94% waste diverted from landfill
- 29% business growth
- £45m invested in resource recovery infrastructure
Commenting on the launch of the report Enva’s CEO, Tom Walsh said: “This report reflects Enva’s passion for the recovery of materials from waste and using them to create high value products, materials and sustainable fuels. In doing so, we provide alternatives to consumption of Earth’s natural resources and make a significant contribution to the avoidance of CO2.”
The report is based on the company’s ‘Three Pillars of Sustainability’ namely environmental, economic and social - a framework it adopts to ensure it operates in a sustainable manner and to provide a broader meaningful context for its future activities and targets.
