Tracking ESG climate targets from US waste and recycling companies
The U.S. waste and recycling industry may be at an inflection point in its evolution, as the risks and opportunities of climate change loom large over the decades ahead. Expectations around environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting have evolved at a rapid pace, leading many major public companies to take new steps in how they’re talking about these issues. Within a span of two years, the waste sector saw a notable uptick in greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets and details around its role in mitigating climate issues.
As this unfolds, Waste Dive is maintaining a tracker with the key targets, data and focus areas for every public company and any private companies that disclose an emissions inventory. This page will be updated with relevant environmental information from annual sustainability reports, and may grow to include new companies or parts of the industry in the future.
