To end waste.
Rubicon Global was founded on a bold idea: to disrupt the waste and recycling industry and create less expensive, more sustainable solutions. Our name comes from Julius Caesar’s march across the Rubicon River to seize Rome. Just as Caesar changed the course of history, Rubicon Global is taking action to change the future of waste.
We are laser-focused on ending waste in all of its forms. This starts with the physical waste that businesses, government, and organizations produce in their daily operations; but it goes a step further to include wasted time money, and energy. It starts with keeping materials out of landfills and creating a more circular economy through recycling and reuse, but it expands to include creating a more efficient and effective society.
Defined by our employees, these seven essential values guide everything we do.
We are passionate about our people, customers, partners and the environment. Our employees make Rubicon a great place to work, and we support them through 100 percent paid health care premiums, generous parental leave and professional development opportunities. Our status as a Certified B Corporation demonstrates our commitment to a culture that rewards and values employee engagement.
As we forge a new path, we welcome all ideas from employees, business partners, and others. We encourage our employees to continue learning through sabbatical and other professional development opportunities. We also partner with thought leaders to further our understanding of sustainability issues and share best practices with the world.
We are creating transparency in an industry where it’s been sorely missing. By leveraging technology, we reveal the true costs of waste management and give our customers the visibility they need to make better decisions. We consider it a privilege to work with our customers, partners and employees to create a better waste and recycling model.
Our independent, asset-light model enables us to do the right thing for our customers – reduce their waste and recycling costs, save them time, and help them meet sustainability goals by keeping more trash out of landfills. We are constantly growing our vendor network and looking for new opportunities to enhance the value we provide to customers.
We are honest and follow through on our promises. Our technology gives customers and haulers full visibility into their service so they can see the value of partnering with Rubicon. We provide real-time access to billing data, detailed diversion metrics, and other critical information that enables businesses to run more efficiently.
We’re doing what many thought was impossible – upending an outdated, inefficient $1 trillion industry. Our people are passionate, smart and creative, and we thrive on finding new solutions to the biggest challenges.
A deep commitment to sustainability guides everything we do at Rubicon. Our goal is to become a zero-waste company. We’re continually seeking new ways to reduce our environmental footprint through innovation in technology and industry partnerships.
