Rawtec is a leading specialist in waste, recycling and resource management and sustainability in Australia. With waste contributing at least 5% to the state’s overall greenhouse gas emissions, Rawtec can help Adelaide reduce its carbon emissions and work towards becoming carbon neutral by providing tangible ways in which businesses can reduce waste generation and improve resource recovery and landfill diversion. Rawtec’s work is underpinned by science and also aligns with the Carbon Neutral Adelaide commitment. Based in Adelaide, Rawtec is also committed to reducing its own emissions footprint.
Rawtec works with organisations across Australia to reduce waste generation and improve landfill diversion, which reduce carbon emissions. This includes:
Rawtec is involved in discussions and actions to work towards a circular economy in South Australia, with Senior Consultant at Rawtec Kat Heinrich speaking at the Circular Economy conference in Adelaide. Rawtec’s consultants are also part of many volunteer groups that help reduce carbon emissions such as the International Solid Waste Association, Waste Management Association of Australia and Adelaide Sustainability Connect.
Rawtec also leads by example in committing to sustainability and effective waste management. With a better practice bin system, rooftop solar panels, minimal printing and paying for carbon offsets for air travel, reducing carbon emissions is within the business’ core values and embedded in the everyday operation of the office.
