Thought Leadership Series: Sustainability

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Last year, we made our sustainability report come to life with videos from our leadership team. That’s right - we took some of our industry experts and asked them to explain a bit about the ins and outs of their worlds at Republic.

The truth is we do some really cool stuff. And it’s important we see how our work makes a difference in protecting our Blue Planet ™ and the role it plays in making Republic Services a leader in the recycling and waste services industry.

Sit back and enjoy. And if after watching these videos, you’re a bit more proud to be part of a Company doing such awesome work, that’s ok, too!

We know customers want to do business with a sustainable company and employees want to work for an employer focused on sustainability. But what does that look like? At Republic, not only can we put words around our sustainability efforts, but it’s easy to see how our practices and processes are all geared toward helping protect our Blue Planet®.

We’re executing on our sustainability goals and doing so successfully. The industry awards and recognitions Republic has received tell a great story – we’re making a difference and it’s getting noticed.

Watch the video below to see Jamie B., Director, Recycling and Technical Development share her knowledge on the Company’s sustainability efforts and the accolades we’ve received for them.

At the same time, we need to use our expertise to spread awareness on safe driving across the country. Our safety programs and initiatives – think Focus 6, Think.Choose.Live., ROAD-EO, Together for Safer Roads –are critical to helping keep safety at the center of all we do.

Watch Lane MacAllister, Senior Manager, Safety, in the video below to learn more about these programs and what we’re doing to keep employees (and the general public) safe on the road each day.

16,000 trucks on the road.

5.8 million customers serviced each day.

These are staggering stats that showcase the significant impact our fleet has on the environment. They’re also the reason why we’re continually looking for ways to reduce fleet greenhouse gas emissions and fuel usage. But how do we do that while maintaining safe and reliable trucks – a component that’s just as critical to our business?

Dan B., Vice President, Fleet Management offers some great insight into what we’re doing to help the environment while taking care of our fleet. Check out the video to learn more.

Think science, engineering, technology. That’s what’s needed to develop new ideas and innovative approaches to pressing challenges. And guess what. We have some of the nation’s leading managers at Republic to do just that.

Brian M. is one of those people. Listen to how he talks about all that’s involved in managing an evolving waste stream that’s protective of the air, land and water for generations to come.
