Renewi Annual Report & Accounts 2022/23
We are a waste-to-product company and a leader in sustainability, operating at the heart of the circular economy. As pure-play recyclers, our core purpose is to give new life to used materials.
Every day we help our customers progress towards their net-zero emission ambition. We do this by creating secondary materials with a lower carbon footprint than the primary resources they replace. We help our customers help the planet.
"Our markets are evolving rapidly and we are attuned to the associated opportunities and challenges."
"Our key strategic initiatives aimed at delivering sustained growth for Renewi are continuing to deliver according to plan."
