Sustainability

Sims Resource Renewal is a sustainability enabler. We stop waste from going to landfill and turn this into new products that boost recycled and recovered content in our customers’ supply chains. Our hydrogen can provide a lower-emissions alternative to fossil fuels in a range of applications.

This means we create value by helping to close Sims Limited’s operating loop and making the operations and products created by our customers more circular. By doing this we help grow the circular economy and build a more sustainable world.

As a business division of Sims Limited, we operate under the Sims Limited Sustainability Strategy. Everything we do is underpinned by our purpose: create a world without waste to preserve our planet.

Hear from Heather Ridout AO, Independent Non-Executive Director, Sims Limited about how being a partner for change underpins how we will deliver Sims Resource Renewal.

Safety and Environmental Performance

Modern plasma gasification facilities operate safely around the world. Sims Resource Renewal will apply the latest, proven plasma gasification technology, as well as leading practice design processes, to convert the syngas created through plasma gasification into hydrogen and by-products like industrial carbon dioxide and construction aggregate.

Importantly, our technology and process do not involve incineration and do not produce the types of problematic emissions that some older forms of waste treatment create.

Sims Limited Sustainability Strategy

Sustainability is at the core of all that we do and is the foundation on which we operate and grow our business. Our sustainability strategy is based on three key pillars that form our sustainability framework. We have strengthened our commitment to sustainability by supporting three of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs):

  • Decent work
  • Responsible Consumption and Production
  • Climate Action

Our three sustainability pillars: operate responsibly, close the loop, and partner for change, guide our sustainability progress and support the UN SDGs.

Climate Targets

Our purpose and climate targets motivate our efforts on climate responsibility. Our climate targets are:

  • To use 100% renewable electricity by 2025
  • For all business divisions to be carbon neutral by 2030 (recently brought forward from 2042)
  • For all business divisions to be net zero by 2050
