The RJS Waste Management team has been working on making the company more green in line with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are focussing our efforts on the SDGs which our company’s daily activities directly impact – SDG 7, SDG 13, SDG 14 and SDG 15:
SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
We aim to reduce our carbon footprint, focusing on the reduction in the use of electricity within our offices. We also aim to reduce the use of fossil fuels for business travel to decrease their carbon impact.
SDG 13: Climate Change
In accordance with legislation, we aim to ensure that waste will be managed in a sustainable manner following the waste hierarchy to ensure the reduction in waste sent to landfill and in the carbon emissions of landfilling. Further, we adhere to the WEEE directive and aim to reduce our carbon footprint that way. We will also decrease the demand for non-sustainable goods and services by reducing purchasing, using resource-efficient products and considering end of life.
SDG 14: Life Below Water
We aim to reduce the amount of waste collected from our clients and find ways to recycle and divert from landfill. We will also, wherever possible, divert plastic waste from our oceans, waterways and drinking water sources.
SDG 15: Life On Land
As a mostly paperless office, we aim to keep the use of paper to a minimum and continue to make sure paper is reused and recycled whenever used. We currently monitor and improve the air quality within the office environment and contribute to the improvement of wider air quality issues.
