Fareham-headquartered waste management company CSG wants to see measurable activities on tackling environmental challenges following the declarations made at the COP26 climate change conference. CSG has also issued its own environmental pledge.

CSG’s Managing Director Neil Richards said: “COP26 succeeded in putting environmental issues and climate change at the forefront of the global news agenda. Now we need our leaders to provide strong direction through agreed measurable and effective activities to which everyone can contribute.”

CSG’s own commitments on waste management, energy efficiency, water remediation and emissions control will be monitored and reviewed annually by its sustainability committee.

“We recognise that our core business activities around waste management have the potential to make a significant impact on the environment and must be managed responsibly to minimise negative impacts and prevent pollution and, wherever possible, to enhance positive environmental outcomes,” said Richards.

“Our commitment is to continually improve our processes for the efficient management of the waste we take away and to proactively influence the environmental legacy we leave behind,” he said.

The company diverted 402,000 tonnes of waste from landfill in 2020. CSG was ranked at number 230 in The Business Magazine's 2021 edition of the Solent 250 list of the biggest local businesses.
