Impact Report

CBI Economics were commissioned by enfinium to measure the economic impact of the company’s operations from its employees through to its extensive supply chain across the UK.

The analysis found that in 2022:

  • enfinium contributed nearly £242 million in Gross Value Added (GVA) to the UK economy and supported 1,047 jobs across its supply chain.
  • Over 600 businesses across the UK benefited from enfinium’s operations, with a geographical spread spanning more than half of the UK’s local authorities.  
  • Two-thirds of this value was created within the Yorkshire and the Humber area – where enfinium has two operational facilities and a third in construction. 
  • Energy from waste provides high quality employment, with each job at enfinium typically 15 times more productive than the regional average and contributes £0.9 million towards the local economy.
  • In addition to supporting green growth, by capturing by-products from its processes, recycling materials, and diverting waste from landfill, the company delivered emissions savings of over 565,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions to the UK economy in 2021 – a carbon footprint equivalent to over 113,000 individuals.
