New handbook highlights key waste management issues for FMs

Facilities Managers consider waste management to be the number one priority out of all the environmental and sustainability issues they are accountable for, ahead of energy management, carbon footprint and handling hazardous materials.

The results were revealed in an exclusive survey of facilities professionals on all things waste, recycling and sustainability related, which was recently carried out by Grundon Waste Management in partnership with leading facilities management magazine FMJ.

Nearly 94 per cent of FMs believe their role actively mitigates reputational and financial risk to their businesses and over 75 per cent of FMs say they feel more concerned about the risk of non-compliance with waste management regulations than they did a year ago.

Building on the results of the survey, Grundon and FMJ have just produced an eight-page handbook which is being launched at this year’s Facilities Show at London Excel.

Featuring 12 easy-to-follow steps, insight from the survey and plenty of tips and hints, it is designed to help FMs establish a detailed waste management strategy that will deliver tangible benefits and mitigate financial and reputational risks to their business.

Other topics covered include employee engagement, setting goals and measuring performance.

Entitled The Facilities Managers’ Comprehensive 12 Step Guide to Developing a Winning Waste Management Strategy, the handbook will be available in print format from the Grundon stand and also as a download once the show begins.
