Ian Sheppard, Managing Director, EMR said:
“We’re very proud to be recognised for ‘Metals Recycling Business of the Year’ and to also win ‘Recycling Business of the Year’ is incredible!
“We want to say a huge thank you to everyone that supports our mission. Without our loyal customers and our passionate, dedicated and hardworking team, EMR would not be the global leader it is today.
“The EMR team is working hard to provide our customers with innovative, high-quality products so that the materials we use don’t need to be extracted from the planet, and we can eventually avoid depleting natural resources. Every day we are making good progress to reach our targets for net-zero operations and we’re keen to help everyone in our value chain do the same.”
