Envac and the SDGs

We support all 17 of the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) and make a positive contribution to many of them.

The SDGs that are particularly relevant to our business are SDG 8, 9, 11, 12 and 13. Click on the SDG logos to find out more about how each one is relevant to Envac and how we contribute.

SDG 8

Envac strives to protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments. Envac systems avoid the need for manual handling and the risk of occupational health and safety risks compared with conventional waste collection systems
an estimated 5,000 workers in the UK waste sector suffered from work-related ill health in 2020 >>

SDG 9

Envac provides reliable, sustainable and resilient waste management infrastructure that supports economic development and human well-being and promotes resource efficiency. Envac systems can be installed in both new and existing developments.

SDG 11

Envac helps cities develop cleaner and more efficient waste management solutions that require less heavy traffic, and contribute to better air quality and more livable cities. Envac systems also require less space than conventional waste collection systems, which creates more opportunities for green spaces, public spaces or more development units.

SDG 12

Envac promotes the efficient use of natural resources and reduces waste generation by making recycling easier and ultimately contributing toward the circular economy. Envac systems can handle multiple fractions of waste to boost recycling rates

SDG 13

Envac systems reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90% compared with conventional waste collection systems as waste is collected from central collection terminals. Envac systems are also resilient to extreme weather events and their aftermath as piping is situated underground.

Envac’s core business helps to create smarter cities, improve quality of life today, and secure a greener planet for future generations.

Our approach to sustainability is based on our mission and vision, which help define our sustainability strategy. But importantly, sustainability is not something we do as an add on – it is a natural part of our day-to-day business.

Envac has been making a positive difference in the world for decades, but we have not presented our work in a structured way to our stakeholders – until now. I believe that this report will help our customers and other stakeholders to better appreciate that Envac is a serious sustainability business partner and that we are actively working to improve to become even better.

I am proud of this – our first Sustainability Report – and I am looking forward to increasing the pace of our sustainability work in the coming years. This is just the beginning.

This report focuses on Region North Europe. However, our vision, mission, strategic targets and sustainability topics are valid for all Envac entities. 

So I hope you enjoy reading the report wherever in the world you are.
