Sustainability: It’s our business.

Clean Harbors recognizes that sustainability stewardship is a core aspect of our brand and an important part of our responsibility in protecting generations to come through balancing economic success with environmental, social and governance considerations. This responsibility is commonly termed ESG. We use various ESG measures to evaluate our activities and demonstrate our commitment to sustainable practices. Sustainability is not only about doing less to harm the earth or consuming less resources, it is also about doing good and minimizing the cumulative impact of other companies. Our core business is to provide industry, government and the public a wide range of sustainable solutions that protect and restore North America's natural environment. We are committed to working with Stakeholders to enhance business value while minimizing negative impacts and seeking opportunities to increase our participation in the circular economy. Our sustainability program expands our commitment beyond our services and products to include our operations, employees and community.

Our comprehensive Sustainability program demonstrates several of the Company’s objectives:

  • To identify key impact areas within the three elements of sustainability (environmental, social and governance);
  • To measure those key impacts, set targets and manage performance;
  • To continuously improve our ESG performance, based on ongoing evaluation of our impact areas;
  • To prevent pollution and comply with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements; and
  • To leverage our operations, our supply chain, and our products and services to improve sustainability performance.

In support of these commitments, Clean Harbors will continue to assess the environmental, social and economic impact of our operations and our products. We will use information gathered through our ongoing sustainability efforts to identify enhancements to our business model, as well as specific activities that could mitigate the Company’s impacts on the environment, society and the economy while reducing any negative impacts from operations.
