CAMP HILL, Pa. – (June 3, 2021) – In recognition of World Environment Day, Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC), a global market leading provider of environmental solutions for industrial and specialty waste streams, today announces its achievements and commitments around improving sustainability and protecting our environment.
Since 1974, World Environment Day has been celebrated every year on June 5, engaging governments, businesses and citizens in an effort to address pressing environmental issues. It is the United Nations’ day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action.
“When we look around the world at all of our customers and the byproducts and waste they produce, we have a unique ability to find solutions to avoid landfilling and contribute to a more circular economy,” said Cope Willis, Harsco Vice President of Sustainability. “In 2020, we recycled more than 14 million tons of material for our customers. We firmly believe we need to reuse the resources that we already have rather than spending energy harvesting new resources. All that goes to helping our customer’s bottom line, but it also goes to helping Earth be a cleaner, better place.”
In 2020, Harsco accomplished numerous goals for sustainability initiatives across its Clean Earth and Harsco Environmental divisions, including:
Clean Earth will continue to grow its environmental solutions platforms in 2021 by focusing on organic growth opportunities, including growing its Fullcircle concierge consulting practice; adding treatment capabilities at existing transfer, storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs); and preparing for its next big portfolio move.
Additionally, Clean Earth will champion initiatives to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and assess climate change risks. This includes conducting energy efficiency deep dives in its thermal facilities.
This year, Harsco Environmental priorities include increasing the proportion of mill services that provide environmental benefits to its steel customers; growing the Applied Products portfolio by enhancing its range of metallurgical additives; and expanding the SteelPhalt business.
These commitments come on the heels of the release of Harsco’s Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Report, highlighting the Company’s corporate sustainability accomplishments throughout fiscal year 2020.
