Pioneering circularity

Every year, we collect more than 2 million tonnes of waste and end-of-life products from more than 40.000 customers across a range of industries. We address a global challenge; turning waste into valuable resources enabling the shift towards a circular economy.

Reduce pressure on natural resources

The Circularity Gap Report states that the global economy is only 7.2% circular1 . NG Group offers circular solutions to reverse the current overshoot. By promoting recycling and reuse, NG Group help reduce pressure on natural resources and hereby reduces the demand for virgin materials. This is an important step towards sustainable development. Annually, we recycle and material recover more than half of all the collected waste, including paper, concrete, plastic, glass, gypsum, and metals. Gypsum is gathered and repurposed into new construction materials. We combat the scarcity of metals like iron, steel, aluminium, and copper by collecting, sorting, and ensuring they return to the material loop. By reducing the pressure on virgin materials, we make it possible to reduce the pressure on natural resource extraction.

Decarbonizing society

Circular solutions improve global resource efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and protect nature. In collaboration with our clients and partners, we are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across value chains and operational processes. To limit global warming to well below 1.5°C and reaching the target of the Paris Agreement, we have to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. NG Group’s portfolio companies impact by actively participating in recycling and maintaining products in circulation. Through recycling and recovery we reduce our clients emissions by more than 1.4 million tonnes of greenhouse emissions on an annual basis.


In the realm of waste processing, NG Group assumes a pivotal role within the circular economy by offering innovative and sustainable solutions, positioning itself uniquely to confront the forthcoming challenges head-on. We are moving from our traditional role as a logistic player to becoming pioneers in circularity. This evolution involves a more active role downstream, with emphasis on developing products and producing green energy from the waste we manage. Our downstream expansion is dedicated to valorizing waste, ensuring that we extract value from discarded materials.

To achieve this, we expanded our waste sorting capabilities, and are enhancing our ability to manage and utilize waste effectively. Driving the transition to a circular economy across the Nordics, we position ourselves as a smart feedstock aggregator by accelerating waste valorization and digitizing the waste industry. The preparation of these initiatives is evident in our organizational structure, where we have established dedicated platforms have to facilitate a seamless transformation. This transformation aims to sharpen our strategic focus.NG Group has formed strategic partnerships aimed at building closed-loop value chains, where resources are utilized efficiently, and waste is minimized.

Sustainability Linked Loan

In 2023, Norsk Gjenvinning Norge AS, the parent company of NG Group AS, signed a sustainability linked loan. Sustainability linked loans aim to facilitate and support environmentally and socially sustainable economic activity and growth. We are now linking a proportion of our interest rate cost to the achievement of agreed upon sustainability targets. The sustainability performance targets for the agreement were developed in close collaboration with our banks and are rooted in NG Group’s sustainability strategy. The sustainability linked loan for NG Group is operationalized in each platform to ensure a joint approach to achieving the targets. The performance against the targets are reported annually in the Annual Report to ensure transparency and is subject to a third-party verification.
