EMR's success comes down to the people who have helped shape the world-leading recycling company we are today. We are people with passion, who care about what we do.
Our business thrives on self-starters who are open minded and enthusiastic. We are bright people, who do what we say we will do. We appreciate those who are willing to try new things and learn from their mistakes.
We strive for transparency between leadership and their teams.
Ultimately, we value people who do the 'right' things – for customers, their colleagues, the community and the business. People who embody the EMR WAY.
Our way is about caring and getting the job done for our customers and suppliers.
We do this with humility and humour
Our success is measured by:
1. We keep people safe and healthy
In the heavy industrial environment in which we operate, health and safety comes first in everything we do. We want to ensure that everyone returns home from work safely. We expect all colleagues to share this personal and collective responsibility to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, customers, suppliers, partners and communities.
2. We are environmentally and socially responsible Our company exists to reduce the need to source virgin metals and plastics by recycling products, buildings and infrastructure when they have come to the end of their useful lives. This has a hugely positive impact on CO2 emissions. But we don’t stop there; we also continually work to minimise our carbon footprint through alternative technologies, energy efficient equipment and renewable energy.

We are mindful of the communities in which we work and seek to make a positive contribution to them by:
3. We treat people with respect and dignity
We believe in the principles of diversity and inclusion. At EMR, it’s not your background or where you come from that matters, it’s about attitude and delivery.
We expect all colleagues to actively support our positive, inclusive culture; everyone has the right to feel valued and respected.
4. We do business with integrity
We have built our reputation for being trustworthy and dependable through many years of fulfilling our customers' needs. Our hardworking people demonstrate honesty and integrity, forming strong customer relationships and enhancing our customers' experience. We want our people to continue to be the reason we stay ahead of the competition.
5. We protect the company’s interests and reputation
We are committed to working in a way that upholds our company’s interests and reputation in order to maintain our ability to reinvest in our people, our operations and our future growth.
