Large or small, EnviroServ helps all transport organisations look at waste management from a sustainability perspective – both of their own business and that of the environment.
Waste generated by the transportation industry as a whole is diverse, depending on the sub-sector in which both private and public sector organisations operate, and this indicates what the best waste management strategy is.
Whether you are dealing with secondary or primary materials, managing the range of wastes in silos negatively impacts the efficiency of your organisation as a whole.
The more integrated and holistic your approach is to your enterprise’s waste streams, the more you can cut costs and wasted effort out of all your other business disciplines.
This goes beyond looking at your waste in terms of the waste hierarchy. Clearly, wherever you can reduce, reuse, or recycle, your organisation benefits in terms either of reduced costs or new revenue streams. It’s a useful approach, but it’s tactical in nature, limiting the benefits you can pass through to your bottom line.
EnviroServ helps our customers to address waste management proactively at all levels – planning, construction, operations, and maintenance – to become a tool rather than an operational liability.
We recommend an Environmental Management System (EMS) to large transportation organisations such as airlines, shipping lines and rail companies to help them achieve coherence across waste management activities. This creates a best practice means to build environmental and waste management into your day to day activities, making waste management business as usual.
For smaller organisations, usually within the broader transportation value chain, a full EMS may too big an ask. But there are still ways to optimise waste management as a business discipline.
Innovation is key to all aspects of waste management in the transportation sector. Legislation is changing constantly, as better waste management options become apparent. New technologies are improving options for reuse and recycling.
While you need to embed waste management best practice into your operations, it is possible to outsource the bulk of the practical aspects of your waste management to EnviroServ. This gives you access to our economies of scale and prevents the need for your own in-house expensive resources and expertise needed to keep you abreast of global waste management developments.
Whatever the size of your organisation, consult specialists like us who have been pro-actively managing transportation industry waste for more than 40 years and are up to speed on best practice. We can save you time and money while keeping your reputation intact.
