Sustainable Solutions and the Environment
We care about the environment and believe that good business performance and good environmental performance and inextricably linked. We believe that we have a positive part to play in the long-term future of the UK Environmental Service Industry. We have a focus on sustainability.
We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and providing customers with access to our research and innovations to help them meet their environmental goals. By creating safer waste treatment and disposal options, using energy efficiently, and by increasing recycling or re-use – RED Industries are contributing to a more sustainable future.
Our environmental experts can help with advice on how your business can increase its recycling.
We are committed to the communities in which we live and work. We are proud of the communities we operate in and aim to improve the areas in which we operate, whether it’s through employment opportunities, sponsorship, charitable giving, or funding for community projects. Our mission is to have a positive effect on the local economy, this means buying and hiring locally and we are proud to be able to offer quality employment and training opportunities to our communities.
Landfill Communities Fund
Communities around our sites can also benefit from funding for community and environmental projects through our Red Industries Landfill Communities Fund. The fund is available for large and small projects – since the fund started in July 2017, we’ve approved over £1million for projects in the local areas around our sites.
We will always go the extra mile to support important local causes which is why we are dedicated supporters of The Donna Louise. This fantastic charity supports families across Staffordshire and Cheshire, they provide care and support services for children and young adults with shortened life expectancy or those who, due to illness or injury, have a life-threatening or life-limiting condition. Whether it’s sponsorship of events, participating in fundraising events, staff’s own personal fundraising challenges, or collection days at work – we are committed to supporting the hospice and the wonderful work they do for families in our local communities.
In May 2018, our CEO, Adam Share, took part in the gruelling Tower to Tower challenge. Along with 11 other people, he travelled from the Eiffel Tower to Tower Bridge by bike, boat, and boot to raise awareness of the exhaustion many of the families who use the Donna Louise experience on a daily basis. The team raised over £250,000 for the charity.
We’re also one of the sponsors of The Donna Louise’s The Butterflies – an incredible installation of 5,000 ceramic butterflies, manufactured in Stoke-on-Trent, to raise money for this fantastic local charity. Limited edition butterflies are available to purchase from their site with 100% of the profits going to The Donna Louise.
