Climate benefit of material recycling

Changing the mindset in society from waste to resource is fundamental in making the world climate positive. 

Through our operations, we have both a positive and negative impact on the environment. Our conviction is that  waste is a resource and working both upstream and downstream is a prerequisite in creating circular material flows and to maximize the value of resources. Ragn-Sells’ aim to keep society within the planet’s boundaries through our business, is clearly outlined in our business strategy.

Ragn-Sells long term strategy supports the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030. The following ambitions guide Ragn-Sells towards a sustainable and responsible business in 2030. 

  • The established waste hierarchy has been replaced by a resource principle that focuses on securing the availability of circular resources. 
  • Our inert landfills have developed into material banks. 
  • Ragn-Sells has reduced the CO2footprint from our operations and facilities in line with, or better than, the Paris agreement.
