Two awards recognizing our sustainability efforts – we must be doing something right!

Check out the info below to learn more about each award:

Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies
Republic was the only recycling and solid waste services provider to be listed in Barron’s rankings.

To determine the top 100 companies, Barron’s advisory firm analyzed the 1,000 largest publicly held U.S. companies by market capitalization. Then, for each of these companies, they looked at over 300 key performance indicators, including water usage, greenhouse gas emissions, business ethics, and environmental impact.

Let’s hear it for the team!

“We are pleased that our efforts have been recognized by Barron’s. Republic seeks out opportunities to enhance our environmental, social and corporate governance performance, while delivering profitable growth – the true definition of sustainability for publicly owned companies,” said Don Slager, CEO. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to sustainability because it’s more than picking up and handling our country’s waste. This is a collective effort to do what’s best for our communities, customers, employees, shareholders and the environment – without exception, without fail.”

“It is an honor to be named to the World’s Most Ethical Companies list again this year,” said Don Slager, CEO. “This recognition reflects our ongoing commitment at every level within our organization to conduct business with integrity and to foster a strong ethical culture while always choosing to do the right thing, for our customers, our people and the environment.”

“This award is directly linked to the efforts of our people and their determination to lead with integrity, and to do what is right when faced with everyday challenges,” said Catharine Ellingsen, Executive Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer. “We congratulate our employees for achieving this honor.”

“While the discourse around the world changed profoundly in 2017, a stronger voice emerged. Global corporations operating with a common rule of law are now society’s strongest force to improve the human condition,” said Ethisphere’s CEO, Timothy Erblich. “This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice. The World’s Most Ethical Companies in particular continued to show exemplary leadership. I congratulate Republic Services for being recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.”
