How to manage and get value out of your waste


How to manage and get value out of your waste - Wednesday 4 December 2019, 14:00-17:00


This workshop will take you through an interactive training session where you will be put in the shoes of a sustainability manager who has just arrived on a new site. Work with your colleagues to explore what the improvement opportunities are, and find a way to prioritise them.

You can glean new information by asking to explore the site and talking to a variety of employees, from the site foreman to the factory manager. Visual clues, facts, data and opinions will all contribute to the information you’re able to gain about the site and the opportunities available to you.

The workshop is based on real-life situations from a variety of factories, and there is a wealth of data and information available.

Relevant tools will be introduced to the session as your search evolves, allowing participants to practice using them in a ‘real world’ environment.
