Our sustainability strategy

Enabling the circular economy is the core of what we do. As the world tries to limit global warming to below 2°C, closing the loop and becoming more circular is more urgent than ever. Our purpose is to protect the world by giving new life to used materials, and our business and sustainability strategies are both consistent to help us to fulfil this.
