Waste Management has a long history of collaborating to provide opportunities for community engagement. In partnership with organizations such as Keep America Beautiful (KAB), The Recycling Partnership, U.S. Conference of Mayors—City Livability Award and Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC), we have built authentic relationships with supporters who educate key stakeholders on environmental initiatives critical to sustaining our social impact priorities.
In 2019, Waste Management created a Social Impact team that will implement a new corporate strategy to help us keep up with the ever-evolving corporate giving landscape. This team convened an internal, strategic advisory group of stakeholders from across the company, representing perspectives from our sustainability, brand, employee engagement, operations and communication teams to help map a path forward. These partners will continue to bring expertise to strategize, conduct research and gather insights on how to move the needle.
Waste Management also continues to engage actively on the important issue of Environmental Justice as it pertains to our industry. See how we have used U.S. Census, mapping and business analyst data to show the distribution of our operations in the communities that we serve.
