"Our first sustainability report is an opportunity for us to reflect on our achievements to date, take stock of where we are and what we offer today and to confirm our focus for the future. The depth, diversity and success that we have achieved does not happen overnight. It comes from sustainability being core to who we are, what we do and how we work - from our front line to our leadership." said Patrick Dovigi, GFL's Founder and CEO.
