Electrolux: over half of Group’s factories certified “Zero Waste to Landfill”


As reported by Electrolux Group, almost 98% of the total waste produced at its manufacturing sites was either recycled or recovered in 2022 and 55% of the factories are now “Zero Waste to Landfill” certified, moving the Group toward the target of certifying all manufacturing sites by 2025. When an Electrolux Group factory is third-party certified to the Zero Waste to Landfill program, it means that it sends less than 1% of its total waste to landfill and less than 3% for waste to energy. “We reduced the percentage of waste sent to landfill by 20% in 2022 compared with the previous year, which is an amazing result – says Claudia Mazzon, Electrolux Group Operations Sustainability Specialist and global coordinator of the Zero Waste to Landfill program –. I am so proud of the great job done by our colleagues around the world who are proactively working to reduce waste and find recycling opportunities”. During 2022, seven additional Electrolux Group factories were certified to the Zero Waste to Landfill program (Santiago, Chile; Zarow, Poland; Forlì, Italy; Cairo Delta, Egypt; Juarez Fabric Care and Stamping, Mexico; Kinston, United States; Swidnica, Poland). The countries that now have at least one Electrolux Group factory certified are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, Italy, Mexico, Poland and the United States.
