Our vision, mission and brand promise

During 2020 we have refined our sustainability strategy that describes our vision, mission, and brand promise.

Our vision, mission, and brand promise fully support our view on the Circular Economy and is at the heart of our company strategy. The circular economy is nothing new – during the 1990’s we talked about the eco-cycle society and Sustainable development. Today’s term the Circular Economy is the direction in which society is headed.


Our core principles

We have identified three basic principles to guide ourselves as we develop our business. The aim is to find business opportunities where all criteria are being met; ensuring our entire business operation is sustainable.

We are convinced that these basic principles are vital for achieving a circular economy and a functioning market where waste reduce and replace the usage of virgin resources.

De facto reduce need for usage of virgin resources
Ragn-Sells ́ operations aim to produce raw materials from waste so that others can use them to produce new products. We need to be careful with what the global production systems have already taken from our geosphere and make sure to use these resources over and over again for as many times as possible.

De-contaminate circular flows and No debts or hindrances pushed to future generation 
In the environment, historically (and in the future), there are toxins that need to be taken out of the eco-loop. We remove toxic materials from the waste before we circulate it back into the eco-loop.


Business areas

Ragn-Sells Group is organised in three business areas: Recycling, Treatment & Detox, and New Value Chains.

Ragn-Sells three business areas are all based on a circular economy rational. What is often regarded as waste is a valuable resource for society and should not be treated as the final destination in the consumption of goods and services. With that conviction, we are working to help implement and improve circular flows where waste is reused over and over again – with the overall aim of avoiding exhaustion of the earth´s virgin resources.
