SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS
DEVELOPMENT
Waste Management
Introduction
AB Glass is a leader in the field of aluminium and glass
facades. Since our humble beginnings in 1991 we have
grown into a nationwide glazing company offering our
services to all sectors of the market.
Our work can be seen on many landmark buildings
throughout Britain including the DVLA in Swansea and
Colston Hall in Bristol.
Although the majority of our works consist of large
construction projects, we still hold true to good value and
service for the domestic market.
SUSTAINABILITY IN THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY
BENEFITS OF EMS
(ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS)
Running an effective EMS will help you with:
Better Legal compliance
Will help ensure your legal responsibilities are met and more easily managed
Effective use of resources
Your business will have policies and procedures in place that help you manage waste and resources
more effectively and reduce costs
Marketing
Running an EMS will help you prove your business' credentials as an environmentally aware
operation that has made a commitment to continual environmental improvement
Increased sales opportunities
Large businesses and government departments may only deal with businesses that have an EMS
Standards and EMS certification
Gaining external certification of your EMS can give your business more credibility with customers and
stakeholders.
Why AB Glass Choose EMS
• We were already carrying a number of Environmental Best Practice
Techniques.
• As the company grew, we knew that we had to demonstrate our commitment
to creating a cleaner environment, our Corporate Social Responsibility.
• Reduction in costs to make ourselves more competitive in our market sector.
• To enable us to secure future projects to safe guard the company’s future.
• Current Government plans to increase Landfill Tax to £72 per tonne by 2013
AB Glass Waste Management – The Key
Factors
• Securing senior management support – allocation of time and resource.
• Employee awareness and training - secure staff buy-in to new ideas.
• Securing the services of a waste management company – ensure we comply
with strict rules and regulations.
• Introduction of recycling points within manufacturing area and canteen –
making it easy for the segregation and disposal of waste at source.
• Removal of all General Waste bins from offices – replacing with recycling
points only.
• Recycling facilities installed on larger project sites – enabling AB
Glass to recycle larger quantities of waste.
In terms of quantities of material used, in 2009 we recycled:
• Aluminium – Approx. 12.2 Tonnes
• Glass waste - Approx. 8.5 Tonnes
• Wood – Approx. 3.22 Tonnes
• Plastic waste – Approx. 2.61 Tonnes
• Paper – 1.95 Tonnes
And with our commitment to continuous improvement we look to improve
on these figures in 2010.
Waste Management – What we recycle
• During 2007, we achieved our first reduction in waste to landfill by 15%.
• By the end of 2009-10 period, overall, we have reduced our annual waste to landfill
by 83%, demonstrating a solid year on year improvement.
Waste Management – Waste to Landfill
Waste Management – Future Plans
AB Glass are committed to continuous improvement and we know that we can
improve further by:
• Working with suppliers to further reduce non-recyclable packaging.
• Further investigation into our waste production and controlling at source.
• Continued training of staff.
• Supporting our smaller suppliers into improving their waste management
techniques.
