ACTING TODAY
SUSTAINING TOMORROW

In these challenging times of climate change, the planet urgently needs our help. We are all aware that there is pressure on nature and on the environment. At the same time the world is consuming more materials than ever. What we may not know is that the process of creating new materials, goods or products delivers 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions. If Europe is to deliver on its circularity targets, companies must take active steps to adapt the way they use resources. At Renewi it is our mission to transform used materials (waste) into essential new products. By acting today to re-use materials, we are protecting our environment and sustaining our tomorrow.
