What is this Event About?
A “resource matching” workshop brings together businesses with a common goal in mind – to save money by improving the way they manage resources and waste materials. The unique BASIS event aims to enable businesses to identify new opportunities between delegates at the event through the matching of resources, including waste, logistics and expertise. Through BASIS, companies can achieve substantial cost savings, generate sales from new markets and contribute towards creating an environmentally sustainable economy. The BASIS 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.

Improving resource efficiency is common sense for business. Increasing waste disposal costs and growing public awareness of environmental issues means that incentives have never been greater for companies to find better ways to manage their wastes and underutilised resources.
