Genus’s R&D division uses a variety of raw materials and recycles wastes, including plastics, glass and isopropyl alcohol. The division established a recycling programme in partnership with social enterprise partners, Adam Can in 2021. Aluminium cans are just one of a dozen wastes which are now recycled and contribute towards our sustainable development goal aim of ‘sustainable resource use’ and support for community programmes aiming to help all. Erika (pictured) receives payment for some 264 pounds of aluminium she recycles each month: she buys recycling bins which she installs at client sites which increases participation in recycling activities and in turn grows her business.
