Guided by our triple bottom line principles – people, profit, and planet – sustainability is at the core of who we are at Visionscape. Our sustainability policy supports a Circular Economy, allowing us to integrate the model into our companies’ processes, administration, research and development (R&D), innovation, outreach, and engagement, mirroring an ecosystem that leaves very little to nothing wasted.

As a Group, we are taking bold steps towards building a business focused on delivering environmental utilities for a sustainable future, while meeting the private and public sector needs of today.

ENVISION

We are invested in supporting environmental sustainability by championing the global paradigm shift leading away from a linear economy towards a Circular Economy. The key objective of our sustainability strategy is to break the link between resource generation and economic growth by championing efficient use of the Earth’s natural resources. Our approach to sustainability is to create this future that we Envision.

The Envision approach is a total impact approach that reflects how we create a positive impact in our host communities:

  • We are leading the pathway towards zero waste by promoting sustainable waste management services in the products and services we offer.
  • We are taking proactive actions to contribute towards sustainable development within our host communities by mitigating our risks and reducing or offsetting negative environmental and social impact resulting from our business operations.
  • We are working to empower future generations through our education and outreach initiatives/programmes, using proactive and appropriate communication tools to engage and empower stakeholders and promote environmental sustainability.
  • Measuring and communicating results is central to the success of our sustainability roadmap. We measure our performance against our ambitious goals and similar industry benchmarks.
