Compliance scheme Wastepack has been recognised as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe by the Financial Times in the publication’s FT1000 for 2022.

Compiled annually by the Financial Times and research company Statista, the report ranks the top 1,000 companies in Europe to have achieved the highest percentage growth over a specified period.

For 2022, which sees the sixth edition of the report, growth was analysed between 2017 and 2020.

Wastepack ranked 566th out of 1,000. The company was one of 12 waste management companies and 155 UK businesses included in the list. It was the only UK waste management company to be recognised.

Lynne Cullis, Wastepack’s CEO, said: “We are incredibly proud to be featured in the FT1000, an achievement in line with our growth strategy and a testament to our dedicated team that consistently provide an exceptional service to our increasing membership.”

She added: “This success is made possible through our fantastic members choosing to comply via our schemes and subscribing to our services.

“As we’ve continued to grow, our company ethos and values have remained at the very heart of what we do.”

The top spot on the FT1000 went to a marketplace for refurbished smartphones based in Finland.


Registered in 1997, the Wastepack Group operates a number of producer compliance schemes representing more than 1,000 members across both the Packaging Waste Regulations and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations.

Wastepack was also recognised as the sixth fastest growing business in Essex in 2021 in consultancy Grant Thornton’s analysis, and the 48th top performing privately owned company in the county.
