20 IMPLEMENTING: Sustainable Resource Management in Your Business

21 What? - Taking action to optimise the sustainable use of materials Real Results: “We changed waste from a cost of ~£80k a year to a co-product that we sell for an annual income in excess of £200k, this action has acted to meet the supply-chain goals of our key customers.” Andrew Maguire, MIEMA, Kepak RES: Efficiency & Effectiveness

22 Advice on Action Getting Started Review sources of waste, and uses of key materials – with aim to redistribute and reduce purchasing Ramping up Focus on reducing resource intensity (material per unit output) Leading the Way Focus on Effectiveness minimise resource inputs, avoid negative env / soc consequences, provide a net positive contribution RES: Efficiency & Effectiveness

23 What? - Maintaining a reliable supply of key materials Real Issues: “Without a clear view of supply risks and an active and ambitious strategy to manage those risks, businesses will be increasingly vulnerable to price volatility, supply chain disruption and business continuity risks” Susanne Baker, AIEMA, EEF RES: Security

24 RES: Security Advice on Action Getting Started Conduct a resource resilience review – to develop understand key materials business relies upon across supply-chain Ramping up Review supply of current ‘at risk’ materials Research whether alternative materials can be used Leading the Way Act to manage reputational risk related to materials Develop networks to further understanding & co-ordinate action Explore opportunities to improve value of materials Case study: Rolls-Royce REVERT

25 What? - Managing material flows so they replenish supply Real Action: “We see closed loop innovation as a major business opportunity” Becky Coffin, MIEMA, Kingfisher “Collecting recycling from our customers, when delivering orders...helps differentiate our business in a competitive market” Toby Robins, AIEMA, Wiles Greenworld RES: Cycling

26 RES: Cycling Advice on Action Getting Started Build organisational understanding of resource cycling opportunities through review of case studies and value-chain engagement Ramping up Review opportunities for re-use and re-distribution in organisation & supply-chain Take action to enhance products disassembly / recyclability Leading the Way Build circularity / CE into long-term business strategy – establishing ambitous targets to disrupt traditional approaches Case study: Kingfisher – 1000 products with closed loop features by 2020
