Waste and recycling
An important rule of sustainability is that waste should not be wasted. Instead, as in the natural world, it should be seen as a resource.
There is a choice of paying taxes on landfill or benefiting environmentally and economically through recycling, upcycling or innovating through closed-loop systems i.e. those that avoid the significant emissions and waste from traditional production systems and instead use waste as a resource within the production system. Ideally, the production of waste should be avoided in the first place or waste should be used as material for further production processes.
Newleaf works with organisations to identify waste in supply chains and opportunities for waste reduction, recycling and for working in closed-loop systems. We also work within your supply chains to address the key issues.
We offer full waste compliance services through our advice and reporting WEEE and battery and packaging weights to the relevant authorities. We work with supply chains to develop and implement waste segmentation strategies.
Newleaf’s web-based product traceability and supply chain transparency platform takes the pain out of managing thousands of pieces of data. It offers a packaging matrix to collect data and report packaging reduction at a product, range and category level for external reporting and performance management purposes.
