2013 Corporate Responsibility
Making waste reduction and recycling as easy as possible for our employees is another major opportunity for us to reduce our impacts. By using single-stream recycling and providing permanent recycling stations for batteries, printer cartridges and electronics at central locations throughout our facilities, we ensure waste is directed into the appropriate channel for recycling or reuse. In the process, we're able to divert materials from landfills at the very moment they become waste.
Launched in 2012, Unum UK's Ready Steady Recycling program encourages employees to recycle office and food waste as part of their daily routines–keeping waste out of landfills in the process.
