What our clients have to say

Here are a few examples of case studies that showcase different aspects of waste management:

Sustainable Materials Management in a Manufacturing Plant:

Case Overview:

A manufacturing plant adopted sustainable materials management practices to reduce waste generation and improve resource efficiency. The company implemented waste audits, identified hotspots, and optimised production processes to minimise waste generation.

Outcomes: Within one year of implementing the sustainable materials management plan, the manufacturing plant reduced its overall waste generation.


  • 56% of waste going on to be recycled by third parties.
  • Biogenic waste (CO2 emissions) has dropped by over half since May 2022.
  • The business has now hit the 2-year milestone of zero waste to landfill at both manufacturing sites.
  • In 2022, waste from the total tonnage of production was at a record low of 5.8%

This resulted in significant cost savings and improved the company’s reputation as an environmentally responsible organisation. The case study demonstrates how businesses can align waste reduction efforts with their bottom line while positively impacting the environment.
