Waste and Resource Assessments

 Would your business benefit from a FREE waste and resource assessment?

 Help to identify potential savings for your company? Generate less waste? Manage your waste streams more efficiently?

CREST at University Centre Shrewsbury has funding to provide FREE business waste and resource assessments.

A recent survey (conducted by edie) of 1000 UK small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) has found that while the majority of businesses understand the importance of reducing single use plastics, almost half are yet to implement measures to reduce waste. 

The survey found that 58% of SMEs felt they didn’t have enough support or resources to reduce single-use plastics and 83% noted plastics reduction as a “significant problem” for their business.

So as a business you are not alone….having an assessment of your waste and resource use is  the first step to understanding what waste streams you generate, how they can be managed or reduced and how you can potentially save money on resource usage.

The assessment process may help you identify savings to the company and improve your company’s environmental credibility. It is also an ideal stepping stone if you are looking to achieve a BSI standard such as Environmental Management.

Our Assessor, Julieanna, is BSI and IEMA accredited and can offer an initial assessment into your business’ waste and resource management.

There are a limited number of assessments available for eligible SMEs in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin; if you would like to request an assessment, or find out more, please contact crest@ucshrewsbury.ac.uk
