Waste Management

Improve your Triple Bottom Line

This introductory Waste Management course incorporates the IEMA Resource Efficiency programme and an IEMA Certificate is awarded following successful completion of the end-of course examination.

The cost of waste is not simply the cost of discarded materials. It includes inefficient use of resources, faulty products, waste treatment and wasted labour. The financial cost to your company of poor waste management could be as high as 10% of turnover.

Forward-looking businesses understand that the bottom line is now a triple bottom line. They measure success by combining the usual financial metrics with measurable standards of environmental stewardship and social responsibility.

And waste management is key to improving the triple bottom line.

The imperative is not just to comply with increasingly stringent national and international regulation. Disposing of waste carefully and ethically benefits the environment and the people where you operate: people who may be your customers or employees, and who will certainly advocate for your business if they see you behaving responsibly.

We have designed this course for: 

Staff new to waste management concepts as well as experienced managers of waste disposal facilities and projects. Participants are likely to be drawn from maintenance management, storage, transport and logistics departments with responsibility for management of industrial, commercial and domestic waste.
