Sustainable development

20. August 2019

For the past 130 years the core business of Rimeco has been to acquire and resell scrap metals for recycling. It is a part of our DNA to spot resources where most people just see waste. Every day we strive to extract and recycle ever more from every bit of material we lay our hands on. And every day we search for ways to recycle not just the metals, but also residual products such as plastic and insulation.

We proudly support

Thus, for us it is only natural to proudly support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Our whole business revolves around goal number 12: “Responsible consumption and production”. We happily work towards achieving the UN’s goal of ensuring sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources by 2030.

A part of our strategy

As all 17 of UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are interconnected, putting our efforts into achieving only goal number 12 will not suffice. Therefore, we continuously work on developing more sustainable procedures and lowering the environmental impact of every part of our business – from lowering our carbon footprint to eliminating our use of excess packaging.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals have come to stay – and to be incorporated in Rimeco’s business strategy.
