The CDE Culture

The foundations for our culture

Our culture is driven by our purpose to ‘create our best world a ton at a time’.

At CDE, we have a team of people dedicated solely to cultivating a culture in which our employees can thrive. Our 4 values are the foundations for this culture and help guide us in everything we do. 

They are: 

  • Believe it Possible
  • Do it Right
  • Elevate Each Other
  • Create Excitement

Believe it Possible

CDE is solution-focused and we pride ourselves on solving some of the most difficult global challenges within the natural materials processing and waste recycling industries. We create platforms for innovation and improvement, and we always strive for better. 

We are immensely proud of our teams who challenge each other, don’t give in to cynicism and always care enough to fight for better. We ensure that our teams have the freedom to make choices that benefit our customers, our business, and our planet.

Do It Right

“Doing it right” for us is about always going the extra mile for our customers and our colleagues. At CDE, we don’t cut corners. Our team is passionate, hard-working and care deeply about our customers’ challenges.

Elevate Each Other

We value our people, their wellbeing, and their professional development.  Some examples of how we put our Elevate Each Other value into practice are:

  • Making Health & Safety a priority.
  • Providing Mental Health First Aider training to a number of employees to prioritise employee wellbeing.
  • Holding ‘Wellness Days’ that focus on mechanisms to help alleviate any feelings of stress, pressure, or anxiety.
  • Providing our employees with learning and development opportunities that help them thrive.
  • Cultivating a culture where our team trusts, respects and supports each other and can communicate openly and honestly.

Create Excitement

At CDE, we aim to ensure that no day is boring. We see and appreciate our employees’ hard work and we celebrate their successes- big and small- regularly. Our health and benefits package, working practices and a work environment that values fun all ensure that our teams can achieve a work-life balance and get excited about working at CDE. 

Creating excitement for us is also about celebrating our customers – we are proud to provide solutions for some of the most innovative companies around the world who are truly making a difference to their communities and the environment.
