Republic Services 2015 Sustainability Report

We believe we have a responsibility to regenerate our planet with the materials we are entrusted to handle every day by driving increased recycling, generating renewable energy, and helping our customers be more resourceful.

Additionally, we must lead by example, working diligently to improve our relationship with the environment and society through decreased vehicle emissions, innovative landfill technologies, use of renewable energy, community engagement and employee growth opportunities. Sustainability contributes to a cleaner world, while also providing opportunities to improve brand awareness, to increase customer loyalty, to grow our business, to motivate our employees and to differentiate Republic Services from our competitors.

These commitments are reflected in the way we do business and guided by the five elements of our sustainability platform: Operations, Materials Management, Communities, Safety and People. We believe in the preservation of our Blue Planet for a cleaner, safer and healthier world where people thrive – not just for today, but for generations to come.
