Innovating for Sustainable Resource Management
In a change to our published schedule (Innovative Sustainable Manufacturing will now take place early in 2015) this webinar explored how innovation in the sustainable management of resources is helping reduce business risk and deliver competitive advantage to organisations. Two of the highly rated speakers from IEMA’s recent RWM conference in Leeds provided abridged versions of their popular presentations to a wider IEMA audience.
- Andrew Gadd, of Link2Energy, will discuss how business should take charge of their waste data and not take no for an answer when it comes to reuse and recycling in his presentation looking at embedding industrial symbiosis into existing business activities.
- Dr David Gardner, of CTech-Innovation, will explain how resource security risks – which drive rising material costs, price volatility and supply shortages – can be managed through improved data, awareness and the application of recently developed tools.
Are you or your work team keen but confused about what to recycle or simply not engaged? Recycling has been with us for a long time, but recycling rates are not as high as they could be and contamination is common. The IEMA Solent event discussed how to improve your recycling rate, reduce contamination and looked ahead to changes coming in the next couple of years, including how to tackle drink container recycling through the deposit return scheme.
