VAUGHAN, ON, April 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - GFL Environmental Inc. (NYSE: GFL) (TSX: GFL) ("GFL" or the "Company"), a leading North American diversified environmental services company, today announced that S&P Global Ratings ("S&P") has upgraded GFL's issuer credit rating to 'BB-' from 'B+', while maintaining a positive outlook.

"We remain committed to making disciplined capital allocation decisions while continuing to focus on de-levering the business, with the expectation that we will achieve an investment grade credit rating before the majority of our fixed rate debt matures."
