Where do i begin
Where Do I Begin?

  • Packaging

  • Paper

  • Glass

  • Consumables

  • Energy

  • Water


Benchmark 1
Benchmark 1

  • Paper - 7 reams of paper/person/year

  • Waste - 200 kg waste paper/person/year

  • Recycling - 60-70% recycling rate for paper, card, glass, toner, cans

  • Water - 7700 litres (7.7 m3) /person/year


Benchmark 2
Benchmark 2

  • Electricity - 33kWh/m2 small office

  • 54kWh/m2 naturally ventilated open plan

  • 128kWh/m2 air conditioned open plan

  • 234 kWh/m2 headquarters

  • Typical practice 2/3 higher electricity use


Think packaging
Think Packaging…..?

  • Can packaging be reduced or eliminated?

  • Can the packaging received from suppliers be re-used?

  • Can you use waste from other parts of the business, e.g. shredded paper from office waste, for infill to packaging?

  • Draw a diagram of the packaging cycle and identify areas for re-usable packaging

  • Discuss with your suppliers whetherincoming packaging can bereturned


Environmentally friendly packaging should be
Environmentally FriendlyPackaging Should Be:-

  • Adequate to protect the goods and materials supplied, whilst avoiding over packaging

  • Crates, pallets and, if feasible, boxes and cartons should be reused

  • Cushioning and other forms of packaging which are not reusable should be recycled


Paper

The total consumption of paper and board in the U.K. in 2000 was 12.9 million tonnes, of which 7.7 million tonnes were imported. 38% of this, around 4.9 million tonnes were subsequently recycled.

Paper

  • For every tonne of paper recycled - savings =

    • 17 trees spared

    • 2000 litres of water saved

    • 4200 KWh less electricity (six months for house)

    • 9 kg of carbon dioxide


Glass
Glass was 12.9 million tonnes, of which 7.7 million tonnes were imported. 38% of this, around 4.9 million tonnes were subsequently recycled.

  • It takes around 3000 to 4000 bottles and jars to make 1 tonne of glass

  • After transport and processing 315 kg of CO2 is saved per tonne of glass melted

Recycling two bottles saves enough energy to boil five cups of tea


Water keep alert look for
Water Keep Alert – Look for … was 12.9 million tonnes, of which 7.7 million tonnes were imported. 38% of this, around 4.9 million tonnes were subsequently recycled.

  • Leaks

  • Inappropriate use

  • Water savings

  • Tariff


Water saving devices practices
Water Saving Devices & Practices was 12.9 million tonnes, of which 7.7 million tonnes were imported. 38% of this, around 4.9 million tonnes were subsequently recycled.

  • Cistern volume adjusters

    • Cistern dam

    • Dual flush

    • Waterless toilets/urinals

  • Automatic taps

  • Spray taps


University
University was 12.9 million tonnes, of which 7.7 million tonnes were imported. 38% of this, around 4.9 million tonnes were subsequently recycled.

  • This Case Study describes how the University of Glasgow has saved nearly £500,000 in the ten years since beginning a long-term water minimisation campaign.

  • Cumulative water/effluent savings of over 329,700 m3 have been achieved through right sizing meters to reduce fixed charges and reducing water use by domestic applications, science departments and building services.


Organise an amnesty day

Why - was 12.9 million tonnes, of which 7.7 million tonnes were imported. 38% of this, around 4.9 million tonnes were subsequently recycled.to raise environmental awareness

Reduces the volumes of unwanted items throughout the facility

At the Scottish Office Victoria Quay the following was collected

  • 16 dictaphones

  • 7 telephones

  • 1 Epson printer

  • 4 boxes envelopes

  • 2 boxes acetates

  • 96 desk trays

  • 4 calculators

  • 8 boxes filing pockets
