What is waste?

Waste is residual materials created from business activities. It should be minimized or properly disposed of to protect the environment.

Environmentally focused companies effectively reduce the production of waste from their business activities. Furthermore, they consider how well they safely discard waste to avoid polluting the environment.

ESG investors should pay attention to how companies minimize their waste. Activities such as recycling, composting, or proper disposal processes are noted when considering a company’s environmental impact.
