Following another incredible year for us here at Stone, we wanted to share the results of our ongoing commitment to sustainable development and progress over the last 12 months as a sustainable business.
Since our last report in 2015, we’ve maintained good progress in our sustainability efforts, whilst at the same time growing in size and range of our activities.
We remain committed to running our business in a way that’s environmentally, socially and economically responsible and which has a positive impact for our customers, employees and stakeholders.
These achievements reflect the determination of our business to secure long term sustainable growth in addition to maintaining the application of our core values in all activities.
Take a look at just some of the highlights for us over the last 12 months:
• Won the prestigious MRW National Recycling Award for Corporate Recycler of the Year 2015 – another incredible achievement following the 2014 Electrical and Electronic Recycler of the Year Award
