Make your waste work for you

Time: 09:00 - 14:00

Date: 12/07/2018

Venue: Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce

Division: Enterprise Europe Network

Event Description:

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 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.

This workshop is being delivered by the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and the Birmingham and Solihull Industrial Symbiosis Project (BASIS)
