    Reduce

    Often, the most impactful way to manage your business's environmental impact is to create less waste to begin with. This might involve redesigning your products or processes. That can seem like a lot of effort, but it's highly desirable for one simple reason; dealing with waste is expensive. Any waste you don't create is a cost saving. It's also best for the environment when done properly. This requires analysing the "cradle-to-grave" delivery and determining where efficiency can be improved.

    Reuse

    Reuse

    Typical examples of reusable items are things like milk bottles or transport containers. Reusing is preferable to recycling. When an item is recycled, it's broken down and remade, and this has a cost in resources and energy. Reusable items are a one-time cost to produce. They should represent an ongoing saving, both for the business and the environment. Reusability can present a challenge for some businesses as it can have a higher upfront cost. We work with our clients to find cost-effective practical ways to introduce reusability.

    Recycle

    Although not as desirable as reducing or reusing, recycling is still important and has the advantage of being simpler. Most businesses (and most households) have someone else take care of their recycling needs. The difference for a business is that you will have to directly pay someone to do that. This is usually based on the amount of recycling you generate. Although there are other factors, that cost is what makes recycling less desirable for your business than reducing and reusing, both of which represent cost saving opportunities.

    By this stage of environmental management, the initial waste generated has been minimised, as much as possible, then reused or recycled. Some of what’s left can be used to create other valuable products. This can provide an additional revenue stream for the business and in some cases any entirely new product or service. We accomplish this by analysing the waste your business is producing and providing opportunities for that waste.

    Landfill

    Similar to recycling, a business will likely pay by volume for waste to be taken to landfill. This among other reasons makes landfill the least desirable option. It is unavoidable to have no waste go to a landfill in most cases. That means the most important thing is to ensure it’s done with as efficiently and as little environmental impact as possible. Ideally, any landfill should operate their own processes to ensure one last effort is made to see if any waste can be used in an earlier stage of environmental management.
