Laura and Jon have been walking with businesses helping them to understand business intelligence and data. In this process many diverse forms of waste float to the surface, and from this substantial savings can be made. It all starts with a simple WALK through the business to help the director (or project manager) see and question what is going on in their own business.
Being able to MEASURE what is happening at any point in time will give the team a source of business intelligence and then they can start making informed decisions. We always assess ENERGY usage because most businesses waste 30% of their annual overall consumption. Why should this money end up in the pocket of the supplier? Every bit of plastic WASTE you have ever used still exists! Every time you touch a piece of waste costs you money. Can we change our relationship with waste, either repurpose or re-use.
Can we consciously choose SUSTAINABLE items which deliver no waste? Or can we return packaging to the supplier to allow them to reuse the packing? Before 1950 waste was mostly biodegradable, but now plastic waste will last for many hundreds of years. Let’s find a better solution.
