Our Business Model


Modern waste management is a complex ecosystem of specialised business operations which can be broken down into the following broad segments:

The M8  business ecosystem is based on the following key principles:

  • own a diverse range of individual businesses operating in all the above segments of the ecosystem – stability through diversity
  • establish synergies between the costs and revenues of these businesses, whereby costly by-products of one become revenue generating inputs of another – interdependence and self-organization
  • control trade of the commodities recovered from the waste stream – recycling the value
  • implement innovative waste management technologies to maintain a competitive edge in providing cost effective solutions to customers – adaptability through innovation

The business ecosystem at M8 is constantly evolving. The two main drivers of this evolution are efficient internal growth and opportunistic external acquisition.
