Speaker(s): Catriona V. Smith, REM
Do you want to leverage your Waste Minimization Plan to really save money by engaging employee ideas to reduce water usage, waste disposal costs and identify other recycling options? This presentation will look at an alternative way of developing a multimedia waste minimization program that looks across media within your organization, takes advantage of a bottom-up approach and will ultimately provide a waste minimization program that will not just be a document on the shelf, but can be implemented with buy-in from all staff levels. We will discuss benchmarking against your industry peers and developing an incentive program to encourage participation and follow-through with ideas tracking and recognition.
