Offices: waste is channelled back into the loop
Germany generates millions of tonnes of waste every year – in business and industry as well as in offices. Today, virtually all waste can be recycled and channelled back into the economic cycle. But for this to happen, different types of waste need to be collected and sorted diligently. Here, the circulation principle of our economy is modelled on the recycling of substances which takes place in nature, by attempting to recycle substances for re-use for as long as possible and in a way that makes sense both ecologically and socially. The key issue here is to ensure that waste is collected and separated into different groups of recyclable materials. This is how DURABLE seeks to operate. At all our sites, we collect and sort our waste in line with circular economy principles and the Waste Avoidance and Management Act. Not only do we seek to reduce the amount of waste we generate but we also consistently sort our waste to separate paper, glass, metal, plastics and organic waste.
