Through partnerships, innovation and investment, we're taking an active role to help create a more sustainable world.
Our Everyday Commitment
Partnering for a More Sustainable World
Across our operations, we are always looking for ways to improve sustainability. Whether we're developing processes to support circularity through recycling and reuse, turning landfill waste into renewable energy or growing our fleet of electrified trucks, each innovation is an opportunity to make a difference.
To remain accountable and transparent, we've established industry-leading benchmarks for reducing emissions, contributing to a sustainable circular economy, producing renewable energy and operating safely and responsibly for our employees, communities and the environment. Our goals are driven by science and focused in areas where we see the greatest potential for a positive impact.
By looking at sustainability from many angles, we're creating more ways for our organization to operate consciously, to limit use of resources through circularity and to help our customers reach their environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals. As a partner in sustainability, we're looking at all the options—and preparing for even more possibilities.
Republic Services is the first environmental services provider in the U.S. with an emissions reduction goal approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).1
1SBTi is a partnership among CDP, the U.N. Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
