Every Company, every employee and every person that comes into our day to day environment must take responsibility for their impact on the planet.

One of the biggest environmental impacts is waste.

We all generate it and we all have the ability to influence what happens to it.

And most people do.

“I recycle at home…….”

“I don’t use plastic bags anymore…..”

 “I Use a reuseable coffee cup……..”

All great stuff – but what about the waste your Company generates?

  • Not all packaging is the same material.
  • Not every plastic drinking bottle is even made using the same plastic
         materials.

It is commercial businesses, influenced by their own customers that are simplifying waste management.

  • Lucozade Ribena have committed to removing plastic film and sleeves
         from their bottles.
  • Waitrose pledge to scrap black plastic food trays.

Common Problems

“I don’t even know what my Company’s waste environmental impact is.”

“Where do I start to reduce my waste environmental impact.”

“How do I measure my Company’s waste environmental impact.”

“My customers are demanding my Company is doing the right thing environmentally.”

“My competitors are winning business as I don’t have the right environmental credentials.”
