Company Engagement Programmes
Macmillan have a solid track record in working across businesses to improve their position on Sustainability, helping them to reduce carbon emissions, reduce waste, improve employee engagement in the sustainability agenda and secure senior management commitment. Helping implement policies and procedures to instil a continuous improvement programme. These environmental improvements are always underpinned by robust cost saving and increased revenue
Material Exchange Programmes
Macmillan have extensive experience in Material Exchange and Industrial Symbiosis programmes. Having run programmes in the North West and Yorkshire and Humber Regions Macmillan have worked with businesses to save hundreds of thousands of pounds in waste costs. Also reducing energy use, CO2 emissions and in many cases generating a revenue where once companies were incurring a cost. This is achieved through workshops, engagement programmes and providing access to a network of material solution providers.
Material Exchange Databases
Macmillan Environmental are currently developing IT platforms that create a knowledge hub for the sharing of resources between businesses. This can be anything from an internal company intranet system to a national business platform. These systems allow the on-line sharing, trading and hiring of any material or resource between businesses as well as sharing best practice and tracking performance. These systems link with Google Maps and social media.
Across all these activities Macmillan have been leading project teams, managing budgets, carrying out workshops, events, setting up and manning technical helplines, writing newsletters, best practice guides, websites, monitoring and tracking programme performance. All the activities that make an effective programme work.
Resource Efficiency Training
We can work with businesses to understand their resource use. We can them help them to understand what improvements they can make, priorities initiatives, create an implementation programme and support the delivery of that programme. Savings are measured and measured and maintained. This programme is particularly effective for medium sized businesses wanting to develop an Environmental Management System.”
