Impact reports

Our annual impact reports detail how we make a positive impact on UK recycling and beyond, on behalf of our members


Transparently documenting our impact, key learns and next steps

Since 2017 we have released an annual impact report that details the tangible impact that we have made on behalf of our members on UK recycling, in the four key areas of education, collaboration, innovation and infrastructure.

The purpose of the impact report is to not only share our successes - we are committed to also openly share our key learns, things we plan to do differently and our next steps in the year ahead. On this page you can request a copy of each of our annual impact reports, including our most recent 2020 edition.
