We know we have a unique responsibility to our planet. That’s why we are continuing to explore new ways to minimize our impact on our environment. Already we have done so much to transform how we dispose of waste. In many markets, we’re recycling or diverting over 50% of our collected waste volumes. And in some cases, that figure is as high as 70%.
It's key that we remain proactive in our efforts. That’s why we’re putting money toward environmental causes that we care about. Our first major grant helped establish the Global Waste Research Institute (“GWRI”), advancing state of the art research and development of sustainable technologies and practices. We also regularly contribute to the Environmental Research Education Foundation (“EREF”) and fund over $1 million per year in research related to the environmental industry.
