We are shifting perceptions to see waste as a potential resource with a target to have all our waste repurposed for beneficial use by 2030.
Instead of waste streams going to landfill, we see them as a resource that can be diverted to other uses – helping us to achieve our new goal to repurpose all our waste for beneficial use by 2030. This is because, as well as environmental benefits, there are considerable economic and social benefits to be gained, too.
By the end of 2020, we aim for 100% of our sites to send zero waste to landfill. This avoids harmful environmental impacts from landfills and keeps materials, such as solvents, in circulation for use in new products. Our longer-term goal is that, by 2030, 100% of our waste is directed to beneficial use, either to recycling, or incinerating waste with energy recovery.
