Multiple recycled material companies make world's most sustainable list
Multiple recycled materials companies have been recognized as among the world's most sustainable – including Sims Limited, which was named the most sustainable company in the world. This is the second consecutive year the recycled materials industry has topped the list. Corporate Knights, a global media and research company, released the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World, which included three ISRI member companies.
"ISRI congratulates Sims Limited on achieving this incredible recognition as the most sustainable company in the world, playing a vital role in supporting global decarbonization by supplying manufacturers with high-quality recycled materials, a secure and sustainable alternative to cutting trees, mining, drilling, and other extractive processes that deplete our natural resources," said ISRI President Robin Wiener. "It is especially exciting to see two additional ISRI members, demonstrating the critical role the recycled materials industry plays in moving towards a more sustainable planet."
Other ISRI members recognized in the Top 100 Most Sustainable Corporations List include:
"The recycled materials industry continues its commitment to sustainability and we could not be prouder of our member companies and the work they do each and every day to make our world a better one, today and into the future," said Wiener. "We're on the frontlines of protecting our environment and creating more livable communities. ISRI members are helping secure the global supply chain by providing raw materials to manufacture the products and infrastructure we use and rely upon daily."
The Global 100 ranking is based on an assessment of public companies with more than $1 billion in revenue, which are evaluated across numerous metrics, including water, energy and carbon productivity, safety performance, diversity, and sustainable revenues and investments.
