Fast vollständige Verwertung von Abfällen 🥳 Industrielle Abfälle wiederzuverwerten ist ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Ressourcenschonung. Wir konnten im Jahr 2020 die Verwertungsquote im Unternehmen auf ganze 97 Prozent steigern – von 68 Prozent im Vorjahr. Unter den Materialien, die aufbereitet werden konnten, sind vor allem Abfälle von Bau und Abbruch. Aber auch die Stilllegung unserer hauseigenen Emulsionstrennanlage hat zu dem erfreulichen Ergebnis beigetragen: 2020 wurden rund 573 Kubikmeter Abwasser als Abfall verwertet, die noch 2019 dem Abwasser zuzurechnen waren. 😊 // Almost all waste recovered 🥳 Recycling industrial waste has an important part to play in conserving resources. In 2020, we were able to increase the rate of recovery in the company to 97 per cent – up from 68 per cent the previous year. The materials that could be reprocessed primarily included waste from construction and demolition. The closure of our in-house emulsion separation plant also contributed to the good result. Around 573 cubic metres of waste water were processed as waste in 2020 that were still counted as waste water in 2019. BPW continuously checks how recovery and disposal processes can be optimised to keep the rate of recovery at a consistently high level. 😊 . . . . #nachhaltigkeitsbericht #sustainabilityreport #nachhaltigkeit #klimaschutz #transport #logistik #sustainability #climateprotection #klimaschutz #bpw #bergischeachsen #solarpanele #solarpanels #photovoltaik #photovoltaic #logistics #co2reduction #familienunternehmen #csr #corporatesocialresponsibility #socialresponsibility #sozialeverantwortung #nutzfahrzeug #nutzfahrzeuge #commercialvehicles #logistics #cargo #haulage
