We are ISO9001:2015 certified for our design, development, management and delivery of programmes and projects which provide resource sustainable solutions.

We ranked 69th in the Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index 2022.

Our values are what makes us: Sustainability, Honesty, Integrity, Fairness, and Teamwork.

Our focus on ‘sustainable use’ means society can meet the needs of the current population without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. 

The objects for which WRAP is established are the protection and preservation of the environment for the public benefit, in particular but without limitation by: 

  • the promotion and facilitation of sustainable product design, waste minimisation, re-use, recycling and reprocessing of waste materials and sustainable waste management;
  • the provision and encouragement of expertise, knowledge and best practice in relation to sustainable resource use; and
  • the improvement of understanding of the waste stream and the opportunities for re-use, recycling and reprocessing.

WRAP & Behaviour Change

In January 2022, WRAP joined forces with the UK’s leading social and environmental change not-for-profit Behaviour Change to accelerate the fight against climate change. Together we will be helping more people to make simple, lasting changes to tackle the climate emergency. Visit our media centre for more details.
