2018 Sustainability Report is Here![/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] One of the cool things we can all say to our friends and family is that we don’t just work for Republic Services … We work for Earth! Together, united under the Republic star, we are doing our part to make the world a cleaner, safer and healthier place for generations to come.
The annual Sustainability Report is an opportunity to highlight the substantial contributions that we make to a more sustainable world. In our 2018 Sustainability Report, we mark the achievement of our time-bound sustainability goals set in 2014: We added more than 150,000 tons per year of recycling capacity; reduced absolute fleet emissions by three percent through the use of Compressed Natural Gas and Renewable Natural Gas; and brought multiple new landfill gas-to-energy projects online. We also continue to outperform the industry average for Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordable safety rates.
What’s most exciting about the 2018 Sustainability Report is the unveiling of new 2030 goals! These goals are aligned with the five key elements of the Company’s Blue Planet® sustainability platform: Safety, People, Operations, Materials Management and Communities. They are designed to address critical global trends and generate long-term value for our stakeholders.
Here is a summary of Our Blue Planet: 2030 Goals:
