Busch Systems Is Sustainable

Sustainability

“When I founded Busch Systems in 1981, it was because I had a passion for the environment and the exciting developments that were occurring in the recycling industry.  Thirty years later, our commitment to the environment has only increased and our Sustainability choices and actions have become central to our values and corporate culture.

Our core philosophy of ‘People, Planet, Product’ guides us in our eco-responsibility, helps in the growth and enrichment of our staff and their families, and aids in looking after our local community and people around the world.  When we make decisions, such as recently installing Living Green walls which benefit our employees and the environment, we know it doesn’t necessarily benefit the financial bottom line.  However, we believe that by doing the right things, that all of the right things come back!

Specifically in our Sustainability practices, we recognize that by constantly striving to reach a higher standard of environmental responsibility, we can encourage our colleagues, suppliers and clients to do the same. Making the right choices takes inspiration, education and participation.  We’ve made lots of choices we’re proud of and have many more steps to take and we hope to share our success stories with you, and celebrate those others make.”

Making A Difference In How We Build

Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.

We believe that the fun of innovating is should not be left just to the tech giants of the world.  Innovation is the by-product of creativity and regardless of industry, is essential for evolution.  Thirty years ago, we began with one (good lookin’!) blue bin and an innovative spirit.  That attitude has served us well as we have evolved alongside the recycling industry to design collection solutions that are ahead of the stream.  Our Research & Design team is comprised of big personalities with bigger ambitions to create the best products for our clients. They eat innovation for breakfast and we’re sure glad they do! Visit our innovation page to see what’s new and what’s upcoming from us this year.
