Waste Management Publishes 2019 Sustainability Report

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Provides Updates Towards Achieving 2038 Sustainability Goals and Recycling

Waste Management (WM) released its 2019 Sustainability Report providing updated data to supplement the company’s full 2018 report titled “Change for the Better.” The report highlights progress on the company’s 2038 sustainability goals, key performance indicators, recycling and recent awards.

“Waste Management prepared its first ‘Environmental Report’ in 1992, well before we used the term ‘sustainability,’ and before we regularly reported on environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles,” said Jim Fish, president and CEO of Waste Management. “Little did we know where this journey would take us. As champions for sustainability, we remain focused on our commitment to our planet and people, driven by our dedicated employees.”
