Our Vision

Zero Waste

In the past, we have often proven that the future is close to our hearts. Our vision for a future with zero waste is a commitment to true sustainability. It is more than an idea: it is a practice we live every day. Ever newer ideas and cutting edge processing move us along the path to recovering and recycling important raw materials, and they may even provide the possibility for involving some new materials in the cycle. Everything is possible with our leading technologies, a first-class team, and close cooperation. Our “zero waste” solutions are tailored to our customers’ needs to ensure they provide an advantage for everyone involved – and especially the environment, people, and your company.

Our Mission

Innovations with environmental benefits

Thanks to the ongoing flow of new ideas and innovations, our own research and development, and our partnerships, we perform waste logistics tasks as well as the recovery and recycling of important raw materials. We use cutting-edge technologies and a first-class team to work closely with our customers and partners. Our Zero Waste solutions are meant for our customers and are advantageous for everyone. For the environment. For people. And for your company.

Az élhető környezetért

Our Philosophy

For the Viable Environment

We have proven again and again that the climate and environmental protection are important for us. We rely on three pillars: waste handling and waste recovery; the environmental protection of our own company, and environmental consultancy services. Thanks to our high rate of recovery, we save approximately 612,000 tons of emitted CO2 every year. This means that not only is Saubermacher climate-neutral, in many ways it is climate positive. We also rely on the automatic optimization of cycles, test alternative propulsion systems, and use 100% green electricity. Our sustainability consultancy services help companies increase their recycling ratios and decrease their environmental impact.

Our Mission

We take responsibility

For people

We consider it an important task to increase value for both our customers and the entirety of society. In the interest of this goal, we adapt flexibly to the requirements set by our partners. We offer innovative, tailored solutions for the people of both today and tomorrow. We want to be a dependable and fair employer for our employees. We appreciate people’s personalities and support both personal and professional development, offering a diverse variety of possibilities for cooperation.

for the Environment

We recognize the fact that our business activities affect both people and the environment. That’s why we do our best to return raw materials to the cycle of materials and protect our resources for future generations. Transparency and diligence are fundamental requirements in the handling and recovery services we offer. We use ongoing climate protection measures to support an ecological aware way of thinking.

The company

We take economic principles seriously and act prudently. We believe in effective process management throughout the entire value chain. We set clear goals and develop perspectives in the interest of successful ongoing development. The use of ongoing developments and cutting-edge technologies ensure we remain competitive and increases the company’s value.

We participate in shaping the future

For society, regions, and the environment

We consider it our social obligation to contribute meaningfully to the development of waste and recycled material management in Austria and Central and Southern Europe. As a leading company in the sector, we are able to use our knowledge to make significant contributions to the continued development of environmental protection norms. We cooperate actively in all waste management issues with legislators, R&D institutions, and public institutions, with whom we share our expertise. Our commitment and ideas provide a significant contribution to developing a livable environment.

Company history

It all started in 1979 with a company based on Hans and Margret Roth’s vision of a liveable environment, at a time when few people recognised the potential that lies in intelligent waste management solutions.

However, the basis of the task has remained the same over these many years: focusing on people and the environment.
