Why businesses should care about waste prevention?

Businesses, regardless of their size or sector, have excellent potential to improve our environmental impact. This can be through changing their own operations or through engaging with customers and suppliers on areas of sustainability, such as waste prevention.

When it comes to waste, water, and energy, making positive changes not only reduces your environmental impact, but it can save you money too.

What can you do within your business?

Start by making a commitment. Everyone in the business has a part to play, so involve all staff in this journey. A green team of activated employees can be a great resource, if they are given the time and agency to make changes.

Remember that prevention is better than cure.

Look for opportunities to avoid or reduce waste in the first instance, then look for alternatives.

There is plenty of advice and information available to businesses looking to improve. Take a look at some of the resources on this website to get started.
