Our social and environmental responsibility

Why should we sort our waste?

  • Because our consuming habits have evolved considerably since the previous generation. We consume more intensely as new products are put on the market and consequently, we produce an ever increasing amount of waste. Two-third of that waste can be either recycled or composted.
  • Because waste ending up in landfills produces leachate and landfill biogas that are harmful for the water we drink and the air we breathe. Biogas contains mainly methane, a greenhouse gas that is 25% more powerful that carbon dioxide (CO2).
  • Because the management of our waste is a clean way of living that shows how much we respect the people closest to us. Waste sorting decisions we make today will encourage our children to learn and influence the quality of life of future generations.

Information and sustainable solutions for our clients
