Sustainability Tip

Do you have an effective waste reduction and recycling programme?


If not, get yours started today… begin by conducting a waste audit to understand where most of your waste comes from. Then encourage a reduction at source by stopping, for example, unnecessary printing and packaging. You can also set up a recycling infrastructure with clearly labeled bins for paper, plastic, and glass.


Don’t forget as you implement this, to educate your team so they are fully engaged, to set clear measurable goals, and to continuously review and improve your new practices.
