We act responsibly towards the environment

Waste sorting and recycling has a demonstrably positive impact on the environment. By sorting waste, we save not only the primary sources of raw materials, energy, and landfill sites, but also reduce emissions that would otherwise be released into the air, the consumption of electricity for manufacturing new things, and the consumption of water. Simple sorting of waste therefore protects the nature in many ways.

The sorting of waste itself is nothing complicated. It's enough to adopt a few rules and over time it will become an integral part of everyday life. And there is nothing better than the good feeling of personal contribution towards the improvement of our environment.

In 2012 we were able to reduce the environmental burden, because thanks to the sorting and recycling of waste, there is less CO2e in the atmosphere by 1,114,840 tonnes. The recycling saved 27,034,318 GJ of energy, which is the production of the nuclear power plant Temelín for 162 days. This amount of energy is consumed by 300 thousand households on average per year, which is approximately one entire region.

Our contribution to the overall reduction in greenhouse gas production through our involvement in the EKO-KOM system is 552 tonnes of CO₂e, which saved 13,285 GJ of energy. This corresponds to CO₂ emissions produced by 259 medium-sized passenger cars per year of operation.

Our company has made a significant contribution to the reduction of the "carbon footprint".

HORTIM International, s.r.o. has received thanks for participating in one of the largest environmental projects in the Czech Republic - the sorting and recycling system for packaging waste EKO-KOM.

Thanks to our contribution, 797 tonnes of packaging waste was recovered and recycled. This waste would fill 343 waste collection cars.

The share of HORTIM International, s.r.o. on the EKO-KOM system represents the annual operation and maintenance of 102 coloured containers for sorted waste (for paper, glass, plastics, and beverage cartons). In this manner we enabled waste sorting for more than 4,785 citizens.
