our global challenges

sustainable waste management

At Waste Experts, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it is the driving force behind our business practices and the core of our mission. We are committed to creating positive social, environmental, and business value through every activity we undertake. By leveraging our infrastructure, fostering innovation, and utilising our expertise, we have developed an ambitious sustainability strategy that is aligned with our vision for future growth. Central to our approach is the transformation of waste into a valuable resource. We firmly believe in contributing to a circular economy, where waste is minimised, and resources are conserved through efficient recycling, reuse, and responsible waste management practices. By adopting innovative technologies and processes, we strive to extract maximum value from waste materials, thereby reducing the need for virgin resources and minimising the environmental impact of waste disposal.

Tackling climate change is another critical aspect of our sustainability commitment. We recognise the urgent need to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the challenges posed by a changing climate. Through various initiatives, we aim to reduce our own carbon footprint and support our clients in their efforts to do the same. This includes promoting energy efficiency, exploring renewable energy options, and advocating for sustainable transportation and logistics solutions. However, our dedication to sustainability extends beyond our direct operations. We are deeply invested in the well-being of the communities we serve. By actively engaging with local stakeholders, we aim to understand and address their specific needs and concerns. Through partnerships and collaborations, we support initiatives that contribute to the overall thriving of these communities, fostering social inclusivity, economic development, and improved quality of life.

Our company culture is rooted in the principle of “giving back.” We believe that businesses have a responsibility to be active participants in shaping a better future. By integrating sustainability into everything we do, we ensure that our actions align with our values and have a positive impact on society, the environment, and the economy. We are driven by a sense of purpose and strive to make meaningful contributions towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which provide a roadmap for a more sustainable and equitable world.

To ensure that our commitment to environmental stewardship is effectively implemented, we have obtained ISO 14001:2015 certification for our Environmental Management System. This internationally recognised standard validates our adherence to best practices in environmental management and underscores our dedication to continuous improvement. We maintain transparency by making our policy statement readily available for download on our website, allowing stakeholders to understand our sustainability objectives and approach.

Paving the Way Towards Environmental Sustainability

"OnHand plays a crucial role in fostering employee engagement within the local community and promoting environmental consciousness. By providing a platform for volunteering missions, the organization facilitates numerous opportunities for employees to actively contribute to charitable causes and make a positive impact. With a comprehensive set of metrics that encompass the number of volunteering missions undertaken, the individuals and charities supported, as well as metrics related to CO2 reductions and trees planted, OnHand effectively quantifies the collective efforts towards social responsibility and ecological preservation.

The ability to track and measure these metrics demonstrates the commitment of organizations towards addressing social and environmental issues. It serves as a clear indication of their dedication to taking responsibility for the well-being of communities and the planet. The positive response and reception from the Waste Experts team, in particular, have been immensely gratifying. The team's enthusiasm and involvement in leveraging OnHand's capabilities to drive sustainable practices and community engagement highlight their dedication to making a difference."
