These are just some of the challenges that Retailers face when trying to manage existing or implement new sustainability strategies. Your goals of landfill diversion, increased recycling, energy reduction or simply having complete visibility of all your data can seem difficult to achieve without your staff losing the focus of selling goods or produce.
This is where the green house can really add value, by designing a sustainability strategy to suit the individual needs of your organisation. We have a proven track record of success with many Retailers and will help you on your journey. From initial auditing to get a true picture of the current situation, through to implementation, education of your staff, service delivery and tracking costs.
How we can help with waste and recycling
Staff are employed to sell goods and products, not chase missed waste collections. With a service success rate of almost 99% we can demonstrate that high service levels are delivered as standard by the green house. Over the last twelve months, we have successfully completed 450,000 collections from some 3,000 retail sites – statistics that continue to increase. Whether from a high street outlet or retail park, our ef?cient and compliant national network of collectors has it covered. But, it doesn’t stop there.
Collecting your waste and recycling on time, every time, comes as standard in our fully compliant services. the green house can add further value with our management packages, enhancing your business performance by increasing recycling, reducing costs and improving your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials.
By focusing on waste as a commodity, we can signi?cantly reduce and offset your collection costs by increasing separation for recycling at store level. Where you have control of your supply chain, we work with you to implement Reverse Waste, our unique system of returning waste packaging and goods to your distribution centre for consolidation and sale using our Commodity Trading and Equipment Supply services.
Add our education packages to this and the green house will ensure that everyone in your organisation understands the whole picture. Then, ?nally, we give you access to market indices allowing you to track the value of everything we trade, providing peace of mind that any payment made for your waste is the highest achievable every time.
We take over as the main point of contact with all utility providers and change the billing address to our own offices where our data processing team scan invoices daily and assign them to the correct asset in our Technology Platform, Campus.
We can validate each invoice against both the contract and tariff rates agreed with the utility provider and if there is any faults with the invoice we will contact the utility to resolve it and reissue or credit the invoice. Once it has been validated it is passed through to your Purchase Ledger team for payment. This service has saved significant amounts for customers over the years both from a reduction on their own admin resource requirements but in catching the estimated 20% of energy bills that are incorrectly issued by UK utility providers.
