At the end of 2021, the waste recovery rate reached 88%, in line with the trajectory for 2025. The recycling rate was 67% at the end of 2021, i.e. below the 70% target.
During the 2020/21 financial year, ALSTOM headquarters signed a partnership with Zero Waste France to better manage waste at all its sites and implement actions in favor of the circular economy. The actions decided upon within the framework of this partnership will continue to be deployed in France on tertiary and industrial sites. A new guide to improve on-site waste sorting and recycling was released in early 2022.
In 2020/21, several actions to raise awareness among employees and recognize good practices took place and deserve to be highlighted, namely: events around the European Week for Waste Reduction organized at headquarters and in eight countries in Europe (Greece, Romania, Spain, Italy, Belgium, United Kingdom and France) with webinars, games, stands.
