Together we lead the way into a more sustainable future.
Our Value ChainWe offer various operational and consulting services as well as material treatment solutions.
“In cooperation with our employees and partners, we work towards closing loops, we think innovatively, and protect the environment and the climate.”
Sustainability Key Topics
When we talk about sustainability, we refer to the common good in ecological and social terms and to limiting our use of natural resources while preserving these resources as best as possible.
Our collective guiding principle summarizes our commitment to sustainability: In cooperation with our employees and partners, we work towards closing loops, we think innovatively, and protect the environment and the climate.
For a cleaner tomorrow, we actively help to shape all phases of the circular economy from design for recycling via the use phase to collection and recovery of material streams.
The circular economy is an integral part of our core business. From the initial design for recycling to the collection and recovery of materials, we actively contribute to the circular economy and its various stages. Through these efforts, we not only conserve resources, but also promote the utilization of secondary raw materials and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This is in line with the Circular Economy Action Plan, a key element of the European Green Deal, which aims to decouple economic growth from resource consumption and enables the transition from a throw-away society to one that promotes reusing, repairing, and recycling.
For a cleaner tomorrow, we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions within our own company and along the entire value cycle through consistently improving our business.
Climate change poses enormous environmental and social challenges for the 21st century and requires action at all levels of society and business.
By developing smart recycling loops and saving primary resources, we aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions throughout our operations and along the entire value chain. Therefore, Climate Protection is not only a material topic of our materiality analysis but also a CSR key topic of the CSR strategy.
For a cleaner tomorrow, as a responsible employer, we create the foundation for future-oriented thinking in an attractive work environment.
Since being successful at our activities would be impossible without our workforce, our employees are important circular economy ambassadors. Our employees, who are mainly involved in operational activities, i.e., waste collection, sorting or street cleaning, contribute significantly to the material value change and constitute an important aspect of our holistic approach to sustainability.
To further encourage our sustainable development, our employees deserve constant access to valuable knowledge and continuous growth opportunities. This leads them, and the companies of PreZero Group overall, to sustainable success.
Partnerships & Innovation
For a cleaner tomorrow, we develop cross-sector approaches together with our partners and actively contribute as a driving force of innovative circular solutions.
Partnerships create an exchange between important circular economy players and lead to holistic solutions. Furthermore, they unleash a high potential for innovation, for example in recycling technologies.
As companies of PreZero Group, we are in exchange with various players from the private sector, academia, associations, initiatives, and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to harness these potentials. Being a trustful partner to these players has a positive impact on our business activities and our role as a sustainability companion.
“We are not only focusing on successful integration, but also on setting up a holistic sustainability management for the whole of PreZero Group.”
