Wise up to waste

Business | Press | News


Local organisations have been offered the chance to attend a workshop to help them reduce costs and understand the legal issues surrounding waste. The free, one-day training seminar is being run by The Environment Council, in partnership with The Business & Environment Management Scheme (BEMS) on the 16th September at The Bull Hotel in Peterborough.

BEMS Project Manager, Antony Gough, stated, ‘Waste reduction is not only an essential environmental concern, it also makes sound business sense. Waste is a major cost factor on any organisation’s balance sheet. Cutting down on waste can save valuable financial resources by avoiding costly practices’.

The workshop will help participants understand the value of waste minimisation and highlight the business case and basic principles of waste reduction. It will also examine current and forthcoming waste-related legislation. In addition delegates will be assisted to develop and implement a waste minimisation strategy and assess the scope to save money.

‘This one-day training course will provide those attending with the knowledge required to start improving their organisation’s waste efficiency and reducing waste at source. Central to this is the identification of cost saving opportunities that will save money’, explained Jane Douglas, Training Co-ordinator for The Environment Council.

Aimed at facilities managers and other decision makers from the private, public and voluntary sectors the workshop is restricted to 25 places. Potential delegates can see further information and download a workshop registration form from the BEMS website at www.bems.co.uk/events.html  or by calling BEMS on 01733 760882/889.

The workshop represents the first in a series of seminars being organised by BEMS. Launched in 1998, this award winning project aims to support businesses in reducing environmental impact whilst generating more sustainable profits. Companies who join up to the scheme benefit from regular workshops, seminars and additional support.
