COVENTRY, England, January 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
GPT Waste, the UK's largest independent provider of waste management solutions and sustainable waste services today published a thought provoking Whitepaper "A Board Director's Guide to Budget Saving through the creative procurement of waste management".
In today's economic climate, business owners are becoming increasingly aware of the necessity for savings and cut backs to be made within their organisations however, many are unaware that choosing creative waste management solutions can lead to significant cost savings and add significantly to the bottom line.
The Whitepaper suggests that by that bringing 'waste management' to the board room agenda organisations can unlock the potential of significant cost savings by changing the decision making process for procuring waste services.
GPT Waste focuses on delivering improved waste management, coupled with major cost savings to customers throughout the UK through an education process. Their service enables clients across the UK to quickly see results and savings made once new waste management processes are implemented.
Commercial Director Tony Mottram said:
"Waste can be defined as a material, substance, or by-product, eliminated or discarded as no longer useful or required after the completion of a process. Put more simply, it's a cost to the business in the pursuit of profit. Waste Management is not an option; it is a mandatory and regulated process for business. But who makes the procurement decision? Quite often, it's not at Board level and that's why every day UK businesses are literally throwing away profit due to the waste they produce and how they handle that waste. Many businesses are unaware of how significantly this impacts on their bottom line and others just don't know how to make better use of their resources".
To find out how your organisation could make significant savings through creative waste management, download the Whitepaper here.
GPT Waste is urging Board Directors to consider the following questions when looking at the organisation's Waste Management Strategy:
1. What is the true cost of your waste?
2. How can you prevent any of this waste?
3. Is there a robust process in place to divert waste from costly landfill disposal?
4. How can you or your waste contractor(s) help you to elevate your waste on the waste hierarchy scale?

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer.

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
