Mission

By means of the collection and high-precision sorting of textiles, a transparent approach to customers and suppliers and a flexible response to changeable market conditions, Boer Group intends to keep the proportion of (textile) residual waste to a minimum and to maintain domestic jobs in this sector so that the organisation’s profitability can be maximised.

Sustainability and safety are top priorities in the implementation of Boer Group’s mission, whereby the concepts of “People”, “Planet” and “Profit” are combined.

Vision

In the years ahead, Boer Group will focus specifically on finding sustainable and efficient ways to sort the expected increase in the flow of subtypes, i.e. textiles of such a quality that they are not suitable for product recycling.

It also aims to increase its share of the Dutch collection market. This policy statement has been communicated to all Boer Group staff and is reviewed every year. The statement is assessed every three years and, if necessary, updated and reimplemented.
