The fact is that humankind has done more harm to the Earth in recent years compared to the past. If we wish to restore the environment and save it for the future, we should start switching to better living habits. In fact, a study shows that we might be able to limit global warming to 1.5°C. However, it is still a little unclear what we should be doing at home to help sustain the environment.
Narrowing the environment scale to the UK, according to various researches, around three-quarters of carbon emissions come from heating, energy consumption, excess travelling and much more. If we plan on reducing our carbon footprint, it will be more logical to focus on actions that are the prime reasons for emitting them. Yes, unearthing new raw metals consumes more energy, produces pollution and is quite costly than recycling old metal scraps. When we talk about the United Kingdom, the country alone has a wealth of reusable metals, which means the transportation and pollution that comes from long-distance rail and boat travel can be reduced by recycling. It is no secret that recycling scrap metal cuts CO2 emissions and reduces energy at the same time.
As far as recycling metals is concerned, UK-based company AD Leading Limited is putting in a lot of effort to restore the UK’s economic conditions along with reducing pollution and saving the environment all in one shot. The mastermind behind the company is 24-year-old entrepreneur Shravan Bansal, who came up with this outstanding idea of sustaining the environment through metal recycling. He always preferred practical knowledge over academics and dreamed of setting new boundaries for his company, AD Leading Limited, and therefore established a metal division called ‘Leading Metals’.
According to the enterprising young man, he loves to learn, but in his own ways, and this unique ideology led him to set up a business that would bring about a change. Talking about his journey, he shared, “I started a part-time job when I was 18, just after schooling. I was in an Asset Management Company as an intern. After two years, I was promoted to Jr Fund manager.” He went on to say that his journey was full of struggles and hardships, but he always stood strong and did not let anything deter his spirit.
We all know for a fact how beneficial recycling is for the environment, and we cannot emphasize enough the importance of reprocessing. But if we talk about recycling metal, how many of you are aware of the benefits of metal scrap recycling and how it helps save the environment? For those who don’t know, there are numerous advantages of metal recycling and why it is promoted everywhere, especially in rich scrap metal countries like the UK.
Recycling scrap metal helps in the prevention of visual pollution, which is the visible deterioration of human-made and natural landscapes. It is no secret that metals are mined from untouched landscapes and are extracted from the core, eventually destroying these beautiful landscapes. It not only brings down visually appealing landscapes but also destroys the homes of wildlife.
Shravan Bansal believes that this least focused industry can cause an enormous impact on the environment as well as on the economic conditions of the UK. The motto of the company is ‘Responsible, Sustainable, Innovative, and Scalable’. And every employee at AD Leading Limited respects and fulfils their responsibility to deliver their maximum output in order to achieve the exceptional goal set by Shravan to stabilize the economy along with environmental restoration.
Shravan’s goal is to allow metal manufacturers and recyclers to trade without risk driving out volatile factors of dollars and LME prices by educating them about hedging risks. To focus more on the vision of making strategic partnerships with buyers and sellers of nonferrous metal around the world, Shravan came up with the idea of Leading Metals. The company revolves solely around the idea of cheap metal recycling in the UK.
Cultivating raw metals from the ground results in consuming more resources but restraining it and reusing the pre-existing metals cuts the cost to a fraction, resulting in zero environmental damage. If we focus on the limited resources of Earth, we will understand that it is better to avoid digging metals that are of no use when we already have the materials to recycle. The UK is a sufficient producer of scrap metals, and reusing these scraps in railways and boat manufacturing will result in less carbon dioxide emission as well as turn out cost-efficient.
AD Leading Limited manages five successful divisions, namely, Technology and Engineering, Non-Ferrous Recycling in OECD countries, Battery Recycling, Mining & Exploration, and Distribution. Shravan Bansal is undoubtedly making a difference through his company as he is not only trying to help restore the environment but also motivating similar startups to learn from his experiences. He provides support in every possible way to help them accomplish the dream of making the UK a better place for everyone.
