The waste management and recycling sector continues to experience exceptional growth and consolidation, with smaller operators being acquired by the larger players. This brings its own problems for energy and environmental managers already struggling to meet the demands of government energy reduction schemes.
Whilst it is important to keep costs low, for example, the larger waste and recycling organisations are members of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, which requires data to be collected and reported for environmental audit purposes too. This takes a lot of time and resource, requiring extensive management and reporting systems essential to help save money and reduce an organisation’s environmental impact.
Combined speed and accuracy of dealing with all aspects of reporting and queries is invaluable. Smith Bellerby has a wide range of expertise to help you protect your investment, reduce operating costs and comply with environmental standards.
Biffa is a waste management company headquartered in High Wycombe. It provides collection, treatment, recycling and technologically-driven energy generation services to industrial, commercial and public sector clients in the UK.
Biffa needed to generate accurate gas, electricity and fuel oil usage data across its portfolio of supplies to comply with environmental reporting legislation and they needed to do it quickly. Internally available data was incomplete and difficult to verify.
