A recent national survey on waste management companies in South Africa has awarded Averda South Africa with four category wins.

The 2018 PMR.africa Awards has recognised Averda with Diamond Arrow Awards in the Industrial Cleaning, Medical or Healthcare Risk Waste, and Hazardous Waste categories, as well as a Gold Arrow Award in the Non-Hazardous Waste category.

Leading up to the awards, respondents judged Averda on attributes such as the company’s compliance with regulatory requirements, environmentally-friendly practices, and overall value for money.

“This acknowledgement confirms that our strategy to deliver a premium service, commitment to safety and compliance and continual innovation to evolve our offering through technology is reaping rewards and meets the needs of our clients,” says MD of Averda South Africa Johan van den Berg.

“It makes me proud to reward industry giants such as Averda on the work done in building sustainable companies. The contribution to business and the economy is important and we need to support these businesses as they continue to grow, innovate and build the South African landscape,” says the CEO of PMR Johan Hattingh.

The purpose of the PMR.africa Awards

The PMR.africa Awards serve as an acknowledgement of excellence in various industries. They set a benchmark for service and quality, as well as supporting those companies that strive continuously for more.

The awards also serve as an acknowledgment to staff and personnel that their hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed. The awards are true indicators of a company’s competency within its industry, and this is all thanks to the teamwork and the effort put in by the employees.

The PMR.africa Awards are the result of a lengthy research process whereby companies are rated based on respondents’ perceptions. The research places a strong focus on evaluations of the customer service satisfaction of each business, providing a quantitative basis for the awards.
