Sustainability is at the heart of all that we do and all that we provide for society and our other stakeholders. Read how we strive to be a sustainable business in the case studies below:
"I am convinced that recycling is the best option. We must ensure future generations can live in a healthy environment and Shanks’ goal to make more from waste supports this."
"Good companies, like Shanks, understand the positive effects safety can have on employee loyalty and productivity"
"Most people understand that landfill is not an option anymore, but are unsure about what to replace it with. Shanks is all about sustainable waste management."
As with many waste management facilities Shanks Roeselare in Belgium has the potential to cause odour nuisance for local residents.
Kettering Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) in the UK is just one of the new sustainable waste management facilities we have built, commissioned and brought on line over the past year.
In 2010/11 Shanks Netherlands activities avoided 715,000 tonnes of carbon through the generation of green elecriticity and production of fuels and recyclates from wastes.
Shanks Liège-Luxembourg’s aim is to reduce fuel consumption, carbon emissions and accident damage each by 5%.
Waste management facilities can be unpopular because of the potential nuisance they may pose to local residents, even if most people would accept that they perform an essential and valuable role.
