The Financial Times released its inaugural FT Future100 list, in partnership with data provider Statista and supported by law firm Mishcon de Reya they have sought to find fast growing UK companies that are also making an impact on their industry, or wider society.

O'Donovan Waste Disposal, a family-run multiple award-winning waste management business based in London, is delighted to have been included on the list which is made up of high-growth businesses that are shaping the future of their sector and making a positive impact on business and society. 

Judges valued companies that went beyond corporate speak and industry minimum standards and demonstrated a thought-through approach to boosting diversity and O'Donovan Waste was chosen for this as well as its positive impact via their environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies and consistent revenue growth.

Companies listed in The FT Future 100 UK have been independently researched by Statista and selected by an expert panel led by the Financial Times and Mishcon de Reya. The listed companies are headquartered in the UK, demonstrate an initiative to disrupt the industry, and make a positive impact on society and the environment.

These are the companies which can rise to the challenges that they face in the modern business world and define their own path rather than waiting for events to shape them. We look forward to watching their progress over the coming year."
