Sustainable Offices: Different approaches to bring sustainability into the workspace

12th November 2015


Office based organisations can feel there is limited scope for moving from waste to sustainable resource management. This webinar is designed to show you that simply is not true.

Office based organisations can feel there is limited scope for moving from waste to sustainable resource management. This webinar is designed to show you that simply is not true. From high quality reused office furniture to the way a space is designed for effective and efficient delivery, much can be achieved within the humble office. Rype Office will provide their perspectives on sustainable resource management in the office environment.

Rype Office demonstrates the value of the Circular Economy by remanufacturing office furniture at half the recommended retail price of new and with less than one third the environmental footprint. In this webinar, IEMA has invited Director Greg Lavery to share company’s journey to date and ongoing challenges.

Bridget Jackson, Head of Corporate Sustainability at PwC UK, and Commissioner at the London Sustainable Development Commission, will provide a fact-filled presentation on how a service organisation has gone way beyond zero to landfill and achieved close to 100% reuse and recovery for its furniture, food and electrical waste, as well as the traditionally recycled materials of paper, plastic, glass and metals. This session will provide information to enable delegate companies to estimate ballpark waste per head, and give pointers on the financial, environmental or social benefits of reusing various materials commonly found in businesses. It will also set out possible phases for businesses on the journey to circularity.

And all delegates will be given access to PWC’s Lessons Learned report - available online at pwc.co.uk/assets/pdf/pwc-going-circular-2015.pdf. The report is written with a view to sharing our experience so other companies who are interested in tackling the materials and waste in their office/non-manufacturing sites.
