One of the Most Sustainable Companies

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] We’ve been recognized with the Gold Class Award in the recently released 2018 RobecoSAM's Sustainability Yearbook - a comprehensive ranking of the world's most sustainable companies.

To fully understand how awesome that is, check this out - Only 8 North American companies achieved this top-tier status, and Republic is the sole recycling and solid waste services provider to earn the Gold Class standing.

A Deeper Look
The assessment for the 2018 Yearbook looked at 60 industries from 43 countries.

Only 99 North American companies qualified for inclusion in this year's Yearbook.

And only 8 of those elite companies, including Republic, received the Gold Class Award.

Whew! That’s a lot of stats that showcase just how elite this award is!

Let’s hear it for the team!
"We take great pride in our role as responsible stewards of the nation's recycling and waste materials," said Don Slager, CEO. "We are honored that our efforts in this area continue to be recognized by trusted third-party leaders in sustainability. This Gold Class Award reinforces Republic's unyielding commitment to all aspects of sustainability, including environmental stewardship, social and economic impact and corporate governance."

"I congratulate Republic Services whole-heartedly for being awarded a Gold Class medal in The Sustainability Yearbook 2018," said Aris Prepoudis, CEO at RobecoSAM. "The companies included in the Yearbook are the world's most sustainable companies in their industry, and are moving the ESG needle in ways that will help us realize the UN's Sustainable Development Goals by 2030."
