Cologne. The environmental services provider Interseroh presents its new sustainability strategy, which is oriented towards the 17 goals of the United Nations (Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs), in its sustainability magazine published today. Therefore, the subsidiary of the international recycling specialist ALBA Group is facing increasing global challenges which the company specifically targets with its mission “zero waste solutions“.

“Zero waste solutions” is also the title of the new sustainability magazine in which Interseroh presents current projects: From lithium-ion battery recycling to sharing economy for children’s clothing, right up to closed-loop circulation of plastic packaging. Together with its customers, the environmental services provider improves the resource efficiency and counteracts the waste of products and materials.

“We take on responsibility for future oriented, holistic circular economy”, explains Markus Müller-Drexel, Managing Director of INTERSEROH Dienstleistungs GmbH. “That means, we want to make the most effective contribution possible to sustainable development, both with our business model and in-house. The goals of the United Nations give us concrete starting points for this, in a global context.”

It is the aim of Interseroh to concentrate on measures with the greatest sustainability effect, in the coming years – and at the same time further develop its own business, in a customer and market oriented way. In this way, Interseroh wants to develop new upcycling solutions for plastics annually, and close further recyclable material and logistics loops, amongst other things, with which at least 3 million tonnes of resources and/or 500,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions could be saved. The company has also set itself the mission of developing more new approaches to “Design for Recycling”, together with their customers, i.e. to contribute to products being made recyclable from the start. Furthermore, Interseroh encourages inter-sector approaches and standards for circular economy solutions – and not least, is committed to equal opportunities for all employees as far as possible.

The Interseroh sustainability magazine is published annually and constitutes an extension of the traditional sustainability report, which is published every two years. The current magazine is available at www.interseroh.de/en/sustainability/.
