Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2015 progress and key facts

01 Jun 2016 16:39

As one of the UK’s largest waste management and recycling businesses, our corporate social responsibility is a meaningful gauge of FCC Environment’s sustainability.

Key points:

  • We met our 2020 targets for diversion six years early and have boosted household recycling rates six-fold
  • Emissions reduced by 14% since 2014
  • We are planting energy crops to turn our closed landfills into abundant sources of renewable fuel, and in 2015 alone contributed more than £20 million to local communities
  • An additional 50 hectares were planted during 2015, taking the total estate to 350 hectares spread across eastern and southern England
  • In 2015, FCC Environment’s re-use shops raised £484,227 for charity
  • At the end of Q4 2015 our Lost Time Accident Frequency Rate stood at 8.08, a 13% improvement on last year (exceeding our 10% year-on-year improvement target)
  • Accident rates have been cut by 72% since 2010
  • Following a review and consideration of employee feedback, we have redesigned our ABCD (Above and Beyond the Call of Duty) Awards, making the nomination process simpler and motivating employees to want to win. The awards are now presented every three months, with new categories that reflect our own brand values
  • In addition to the money raised for charity through our network of re-use shops, FCC Environment’s involvement in the Landfill Communities Fund continued to deliver lasting benefits to communities and the environment throughout 2015. In 2015 a total of 340 projects received funding of over £20m
  • FCC Environment employs 2,449 people across England, Scotland and Wales at more than 200 different sites
