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.
