Question

Does the brand recycle at least 90% of its waste, rather than incinerating it or dumping it on a landfill?

NL: Recyclet het merk minstens 90% van zijn afval, in plaats van het te verbranden of dumpen op een afvalstort?

DE: Recycled der Markenhersteller mindestens 90% des selbsterzeugten Abfalls - statt Müllverbrennung oder Deponierung?

Reference

Following up on the previous environmental question about waste, and in line with transitioning to a fully circular economy, companies are encouraged to recycle, donate or reuse as much waste as possible, rather than incinerating it, or sending it to a landfill. As such, this question similarly corresponds to Disclosure 306-2 of the Global Reporting Initiative, and rewards best practices such as those by Telefonica (page 163). Note that reuse and donation are counted here as valid alternatives to recycling.

Ranking Guidelines

Answer Yes:

  • The brand reports that at least 90% of its waste (measured in weight or volume) is recycled. Reusing and donating also count toward this percentage.


Answer No:

  • Brand specifically reports that it recycles less than 90% of its total waste. Waste can be measured in volume or weight.

Answer ?:

Brand reports no percentage, or the percentage refers to only part of a company’s waste.

Answering Guidelines

Answer Yes:

  • [Brand] reports that in [year] at least 90% of its total waste [volume/(measured in weight)*] was recycled, reused or donated (see link, page...).



Answer No:

  • [Brand] reports that in [year] less than 90% of its total waste [volume/(measured in weight)*] was recycled, reused or donated (see link, page...).


Answer ?:

  • [Brand] does not report what percentage of its total waste [volume/(measured in weight)*] was recycled, reused or donated (see link, page...).
  • [Brand] report a percentage of recycled, reused, or donated waste, but it is not clear whether this refers to [brand]’s total waste [volume/(measured in weight)*] (see link, page...).
