At EMR, we make it our mission to utilise our considerable knowledge and influence within the metal recycling industry for the greater good.
The EMR way is about caring for our people and our communities. We're a global company with local roots; each one of our locations and the staff we employ are integral to the communities in which they are based.
Whether it’s empowering local communities, inspiring the next generation or encouraging environmental change, our corporate giving programme aims to make a positive and lasting contribution through engagement, collaboration and measurable action.
Young Futures Reimagined
Our commitment to delivering positive social change through our charitable partnerships helps empower local communities and help build bright futures for young people across the UK.
We partner each of our EMR sites with local, grass roots organisations, which work to support young people’s personal, social and educational development to help them gain employment and improve their lives. Engaging our staff at these sites help us to make a direct difference to the communities we serve.

Earth’s natural resources are under threat; it is estimated that sources of virgin metals could run out within a century, yet demand continues to increase. Educating children at an early age on the benefits of recycling can be a powerful tool for encouraging vital, long-term changes in behaviour.
Focussing on 8 to 12-year-olds, we have developed several initiatives aimed at inspiring the next generation. These include:
Recyclabots: A schools' educational programme in partnership with Currys PC World; part of EMR's programme to inspire the next generation.
“We want to inspire children to make positive environmental changes by recycling metal and old or unused tech, such as phones, hair dryers and household waste metal. With our ‘Recyclabots’ schools programme, children can learn about the importance of metals and the programme will inform a generation who we hope will make recycling a natural part of their everyday life.”

EMR sites support their local areas by enabling staff to take part and support their local community clean up events. It is incredible just how much waste can be collected; often several huge skips can be filled in a day!
