I end almost every post with the same call out: I believe that Zero Waste Consultants can help. So I thought I would briefly tell you how this can happen for your company’s sustainability goals.
Those sustainability goals are, in all likelihood, spread out over various departments within your business. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon. Or perhaps those recycling efforts are tasked to a person(s) who do not have the authority or internal support to make the decisions needed to achieve those goals. And because those resources may be working at odds with your overall goals, the potential savings to your P&L and more importantly, the savings provided to the environment is under-realized – or not being realized at all.
Here’s what we can do to get you closer those goals.
- We will examine and evaluate your current sustainable/recycling programs. While there is no shame in bad choices that seemed to be good choices when they were made, we help you redirect those efforts. This might be a simple as finding you more engaged partners. With the industry evolving as quickly as it currently is, we can help facilitate a program that will grow with you, and in many instances place you ahead of any legislative efforts concerning both wasted food and plastic (and a variety of other waste problems you might have).
- We bring new and innovative companies to your doorstep. In too many instances, your internal operations are unaware of the numerous options that might be available. And because we have been seated in similar positions, we understand the difficulties you face joining concept with reality.
- We will work with your people, both in leadership and at ground level to discover how you can take advantage of untapped internal processes such a reverse distribution (if you have warehouses) and education to ensure success. Your zero heroes currently work for you but in many companies, these people do not know how they can help. This is a valuable downstream resource that can influence upstream issues.
- We will work also with local governments to create sustainable support for your efforts. Most communities want to do the right thing and have hired bright minds to lead their municipalities in the right direction. No longer are the regulatory agencies at odds with your goals and in fact, may provide assistance without the regulations.
- And we help manage those programs and partners, those relationships and ultimately, the realization of a green business. In short, we can get you to the ultimate goal of every sustainably focused business: A circular economic platform.
Your company’s goals in combination with creative ideas and our practical solutions will bring your zero waste goals closer to zero. Shouldn’t we begin the conversation?
