BMRA is keen to communicate the benefits of metal recycling for the environment and advocates the adoption of best practice across the metal recycling industry. We are please to be working with the World Land Trust (WLT), demonstrating our shared values and proving our commitment to environmental responsibility and our drive to promote the benefits of using secondary raw materials. In 2017, BMRA donated £5,000 to WLT’s Saving Kinabatangan Borneo Appeal to help fund the purchase and protection of parcels of rainforest along the Kinabatangan River in Malaysian Borneo for the wealth of wildlife that depends on this habitat.
“As a naturalist, I have been to places where you can see, feel and hear the impact of global warming and deforestation. Given the environmental protection benefits and carbon dioxide emissions reductions associated with metal recycling, I find it heartening that groups such as the BMRA are joining the fight to raise awareness of the significant environmental issues our planet is facing. I am particularly pleased that the Association has chosen to support our WLT Borneo Appeal, which is a project that is very important to me”.
