Congratulations to all PHOENIX colleagues in Toulouse – due to their commitment and environmental awareness, a recycling rate of 87% of paper and cardboard was achieved in 2017 and thus rewarded recently by their main recycling supplier Paprec. Only 10 companies out of 400 are getting the Certificate of Excellence by Paprec!
What are the benefits of recycling? There are many good reasons to follow the great example from France.
In Toulouse, a total of 78 tonnes of waste was recycled. This is equivalent to the following savings:
- 8 tonnes less CO2 emissions
- 1,275 trees saved
- 66 tons of oil saved
- 3,615 m3 of water - or an Olympic pool saved!
- 793 MWh of energy - or the total power of 7 "Queen Mary 2" cruise ships
France, and not only the depot in Toulouse, is helping preserving our natural resources and reducing our carbon footprint. Good job, keep it up!
What about your own recycling efforts rates? We should all do our best and follow the good example and try to increase our recycling rates!
