Our People

We expected our people to be identified as one of the programmes through our materiality assessment, reflecting the importance of our people in making Waste Management a sustainable company into the future.

In this programme we are focusing on projects that will enhance and improve opportunities for our teams, both those who are part of Waste Management now and those who will be our future.
