POPAI SUSTAINABILITY STANDARD - Waste reduction & emissions

  • Looking at water consumption, companies should be able to identify water-intensive activities and appropriate water savings, as well as to analyse, monitor and report on initiatives to reduce consumption.

  • In their guide ‘Saving Money Through Resource Efficiency: Reducing Water Use’, WRAP estimate that water costs can be between 1% and 2% of a company’s turnover – equating to £20,000 for a £2m-turnover company.

  • Businesses who make emissions to land, water or air are regulated by UK and European laws and must comply with all current laws.

  • A good idea on how to start the transformation of your site and practices is to consider the following ten points, as proposed by WRAP and prepare a process map.?
