Bywaters is the first large scale waste management and recycling services company to join the Planet Mark.
Whilst achieving The Planet Mark, Bywaters will work with Planet First to see how sustainability can be improved within their business. Ensuring that all new initiatives fit in with the culture of a company is vital for the successful reduction of their carbon footprint and it is a challenge they are ready for.
We first met Bywaters whilst working together on an Occupier Sustainability Programme with Land Securities and it was here that we realised how our businesses could benefit from each other. Being a waste management facility, they felt that it was particularly important to realise their impact on the planet.
“Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility are central to Bywaters’ core business operations and we pride ourselves on providing a sustainable zero direct to landfill solution. Our commitment to continuous sustainable improvement led us to achieve the Planet Mark with the help of Planet First. We are delighted to be the first recycling and waste management company to achieve the certification and look forward to using this to help our customers, and ourselves, reach our sustainability targets.”

Having visited their Materials Recovery Facility in February we got a fascinating insight into what happens to rubbish after it is thrown away.
Bywaters will be hosting a series of visits to their Materials Recovery Facilities to help other Planet Mark organisations understand and improve the process of recycling.
