The strategy, which builds on the Group’s long track-record of making a positive contribution to the environment and communities it operates in, outlines Biffa’s ambition to drive the sustainability agenda within the UK waste management space for the next ten years.
It is underpinned by an ambitious but deliverable plan, which is aligned to Biffa’s strategic framework and fully supported by the Group’s previously outlined investment plans.
Group’s strategy sets out to unlock an estimated £1.25bn of investment over the next 10 years in UK green economy infrastructure, improving UK recycling and recovery capability
It also includes a target to reduce emissions by a further 50% by 2030.
I am very proud of the great progress that we, and the wider industry, have made in recent years to grow recycling levels and drive significant reduction in CO2 emissions, but we recognise there is much more to do
