What is this Event About?

This “resource matching” workshop brings together businesses with a common goal in mind – to save money and increase profits by improving the way they manage resources and waste materials. The workshop aims to enable businesses to identify new opportunities between delegates throughout the day by identifiying materials and other resources in your business that can be used by another organisation either in the same condition, or reprocessed for a different use.

Through this workshop, companies can also claim 12 hours of FREE consultation* on establishing and identifying all available resources within your organisation and record your current disposal, time management and energy costs. the presentation will be an introduction into the project and will enable you to see the benefits that have been provided by this programme to other businesses.

Through this event and the consultations, companies can achieve substantial cost savings, generate increase profits from new markets and contribute towards creating an environmentally sustainable economy. The team will facilitate a lively and interactive session that will allow companies to exchange details about waste streams they 'have' on-site or ‘want’ as a resource. Remember to bring details of resources you wish to share or discuss on the day.
