Waste and resource management are becoming increasingly important as ways of increasing business efficiency and saving costs. At EMC, we understand that businesses want to reduce the resources they use and the price they pay to dispose of waste without compromising on quality.
Over the past decade, waste legislation has become increasingly involved and complex, which has increased the effort required to manage and dispose of wastes properly and the associated costs. We can help to identify the relevant legislation to assist in maintaining compliance and how to minimise the wastes produced and the costs of disposal.
We look at the resources you use during normal operations and identify ways in which their consumption can be reduced or if alternative resources can be used.
We look at the volume and types of wastes you produce and why you produce them with a view to reduction or elimination.
These help you to manage your liabilities effectively and to meet the requirements of your existing management systems, legal compliance and other stakeholders’ requirements.
We can help you to identify whether you are obligated under the regulations, what your obligations are and how to comply.
We can help you to identify how you can make your processes more efficient and reduce the amount of waste you produce.
We identify ways in which you can reduce the volume of waste you produce, for example, by designing out waste from process activities.
We check if you and your waste service providers are complying with waste legislation and provide solutions for compliance and best practice.
Waste legislation, waste minimisation, designing out waste and resource management. We have a broad range of experience of providing training to all organisational levels in interactive group sessions. We also provide web-based training.
