London Stock Exchange welcomes Renewi plc

Renewi plc, created in February 2017 by the merger of Shanks Group plc and Van Gansewinkel Groep B.V., today opened the markets of London Stock Exchange to celebrate the merger of the two companies, and the creation of one of the largest recycling companies in Europe.

Renewi is a leading waste-to-product business ideally positioned to be part of the solution to some of the main environmental problems facing society today: reducing waste, avoiding pollution, and preventing the unnecessary use of finite natural resources. With over 8,000 employees across nine countries in Europe and North America, Renewi has deep expertise and an extensive breadth of waste management products and services. For us, waste is a state of mind, an opportunity. When we take away someone’s waste we then give it new life. We transform a wide range of used materials into useful products and raw materials for our customers, like recycled paper, metal, plastic and glass, woodchips, compost, energy, fuel, and other products. In the process we protect the world from contamination, preserve finite natural resources, and enable our customers to meet their sustainability goals. With our deep international expertise we also provide them with an extensive product range, combined with local service. Above all, our team is committed and passionate about our mission: waste no more.

Chief Executive Peter Dilnot said:

"We are delighted to have completed our transformational merger and rebranded as Renewi, bringing two strong companies together to create a new international waste-to-product leader at the heart of the emerging circular economy. We are working at pace to deliver the integration plan, and to create sustainable value for shareholders, customers, employees and the communities we serve."
