Clover Issues Third Annual Sustainability Report
CHICAGO, Ill. – Clover Holdings, Inc., a provider of vertically integrated, closed loop environmental solutions has issued its third annual sustainability report. This third annual sustainability report is aligned with Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) sustainability reporting guidelines and encompasses Clover’s global operations.
The report examines the environmental impact of Clover’s global collections, remanufacturing, and recycling operations as well as its key social impacts.
Findings in the Report Include:
- Clover collected over 76 million units including cartridges, cell phones, small electronics and printer components
- Clover’s ink cartridges contain 97-percent post-consumer recycled content
- Clover's reuse efforts diverted over 33 million pounds of material from landfill
“We appreciate that our role as industry leaders should be marked not only by fiscal success but by environmental stewardship,” said Jim Cerkleski, CEO of Clover. “By collecting more, we were able to ensure 56 million pounds of material was kept from landfill. By adding facilities in new geographic locations, we reduced the distance traveled by our collections which significantly lessened the carbon impact of that movement. By growing our operations in the consumer electronics space, we were able to provide an environmentally responsible solution for potentially hazardous waste products and the assurance that our customer’s personal data would be safely managed. ”
