Ever-expanding waste legislation, consumer pressure and growing business awareness of the benefits of sustainability have all increased the need for organisations to improve their environmental performance. Many companies are unaware of the true cost of waste to their business. Implementing a structured waste minimisation programme saves on costs, in terms of wasted raw materials, energy, effort, waste disposal and handling and potential fines, as poor management can land an organisation on the wrong side of the law. It also improves the quality of the environment and an organisation’s business and public profile and heightens competitiveness.
This intensive one-day introductory course is designed for any organisation that wants to take another look at their waste by developing a sound understanding of the requirements to meet legal standards and the associated practical implications of setting up an effective waste management program to set them on the road to zero waste.
Douglas has demonstrated incredible knowledge in the area of Waste Management. He has simplified the process, provided substantial knowledge for managing the category and delivered adequate training to ensure the targets are achievable within the group.
