With its sustainable partnerships with various companies, AVR is achieving a serious CO2 reduction in the area around its sites:
CO2 reduction through urban heat in Rotterdam
Through an intensive collaboration between AVR and the Rotterdam heating company, the heating pipeline via Rotterdam-South has been created.

In 2014 through cooperation with Eneco, another urban heat pipeline was established that supplies households in Rotterdam-North with urban heat from AVR: http://www.rotterdamclimateinitiative.nl/nl/nieuws/nieuwsberichten/co2-reductie-in-rotterdamse-regio-dankzij-warmtelevering-afvalenergiecentrale?news_id=937
CO2 reduction through urban heat in Duiven and Arnhem
As of 22 January 2015, the heat that is released by burning waste at AVR Duiven has been sent, via a smart network, to households in Duiven and Arnhem. AVR collaborated in the creation of this network, which is managed by NUON: Festive opening linking NUON Urban heat with AVR.
