Zero waste to landfill

ASSA ABLOY strives to minimise waste at every possible opportunity based on the mantra – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

This allows us to focus on driving waste up the hierarchy to avoid waste generation in the first place. In the EMEA division, ASSA ABLOY has 15 sites who have achieved Zero waste to landfill. To validate this claim, we appointed the internationally recognised NGO, Carbon Trust, to independently verify our Zero waste status.

“Avoiding landfill is an important first step for businesses wanting to deal more effectively with waste. Achieving this for all waste arisings is not easy, especially for a manufacturing business. ASSA ABLOY deserves to be congratulated for successfully achieving zero-waste-to-landfill in fifteen sites across Europe. The Carbon Trust's independent verification of this achievement demonstrates ASSA ABLOY's clear commitment to improving waste management and their sustainability credentials” says Darran Messem, Managing Director for Carbon Trust, Certification.
