Our newly released 2019 Sustainability Report showcases some of the many great things we are doing to take care of our planet for future generations and help communities thrive. It will take dedication and teamwork to accomplish our ambitious sustainability goals which will carry us through 2030. Thank you for all of your hard work in helping us get there!

Visit Blue Nation Online every week as we take a deep dive into each of our goals and specific initiatives contributing to our success. Over the next several weeks, we’ll take a closer look at the following five areas of our sustainability plan:
Week 5: Helping Our Communities Thrive
It’s been said that charity begins at home, and for Republic Services, that means helping make a difference in the neighborhoods where our employees and customers live and work. As a company, we give back to our communities in a variety of ways, always focused on impacting the greater good of the neighborhood and the people who live there.
We will continue to expand our charitable giving activities and have set the ambitious goal of positively impact 20 million people by 2030.
Here are a few highlights of our charitable giving and volunteering efforts that demonstrate our commitment to investing in the communities where we live and work.
National Neighborhood Promise
Through the National Neighborhood Promise program, the Republic Services Charitable Foundation works with our national nonprofit partners, Rebuilding Together, Habitat for Humanity International and NeighborWorks America, to directly support projects and programs across the country. These partnerships strengthen neighborhoods by rebuilding, revitalizing and restoring public places and spaces such as parks, playgrounds and other vital community landmarks.
Employee Giving Program
Whether it’s supporting the environment, veterans, animal welfare or health causes, the Employee Giving Program makes it easy for all of us to make a difference. Employees can contribute to the charitable organizations you care about most through a payroll deduction, with the flexibility to choose a recurring deduction or one-time contribution. When each employee gives a little, we can make a big impact together.
