Sustainability strategy

Ragn-Sells is a third-generation family business and pioneers in recycling, originating all the way back to 1881. Every generation since has kept a vision of a sustainable society at the heart of developing the company. 

The circular economy is not a new thing for us. During the 90’s we talked about the eco-cycle society and sustainable development. Today’s term circular economy is the direction that society is headed towards. Climate change and other sustainability challenges are high on the world’s political agenda. Ragn-Sells welcomes this development and actively supports this transition.

Climate positive in 2030

Ragn-Sells company strategy rests on the foundation of heading towards a circular economy empowered by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Through our business model and core business, we see a direct impact on four of the SDGs; Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure (SDG 9), Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12), Climate Action (SDG 13), and Partnerships for the Goals (SDG 17). This connection is made as our portfolio reduces environmental impact from use of natural resources in production and consumption, as well as assures a secure handling of hazardous waste.

Our overall commitment is to be climate positive by 2030 and to drive the transition to a society based on circular principles in a low carbon economy.

We will do this by developing innovative circular solutions that both detoxify and recycle back critical resources to society, along with implementing innovative circular solutions that will both avoid emissions somewhere else and capture already existing CO2 emissions. Read more about our 10 goals for how to become climate positive by 2030.
