All organisations today have a duty to ensure they are addressing social, economic and environmental issues, whilst minimising the potential impact on their finances. It is vital to ensure that Corporate Social Responsibility makes economic sense.
At Sims Metal Management we know about these challenges and as a global leader we use new technology developments to meet and exceed the increasing requirements for higher recycling and recovery rates.
Sims Metal Management is the world’s leading electronics and metal recycling company. We are global leaders in the secure and sustainable management of metals from industry, trade and the wider community. With an annual turnover exceeding £5 billion and hundreds of sites across the world, our performance and leadership on environmental, social and governance policies has seen us listed as one of the Global Top 100 Most Sustainable Corporations for the fourth year in a row.
We operate from over 250 sites spanning five continents, with 42 metals recycling sites in the UK. Globally, the business has over 90 years of experience in metals recycling and lead the way in technology development to achieve higher recycling and recovery rates.
What we do
Globally, Sims Metal Management recovers and recycles over 14 million tonnes of scrap metal a year of which two million tonnes is handled in the UK alone. We turn vehicles, machinery, building materials and a whole host of other domestic and industrial items into useful commodities that can be re-used in manufacturing new products. This saves the energy and environmental costs associated with producing materials such as steel, copper, aluminium and glass from virgin sources. Our metals recycling processes produce maximum value and the highest grade of recycled metals for re-use in manufacturing. This ensures we can provide customers with very competitive prices.
