COACHING TOWARDS THE TRUE CERTIFICATION

As a certified TRUE advisor, we are able to support organisations operating in Cambodia in successfully implementing impactful waste reduction and diversion measures  for their facility and to assist them throughout the TRUE certification process.

GBCI’s TRUE certification programme measures, improves and recognizes zero waste performance by encouraging the adoption of sustainable resource management and waste reduction practices that contribute to positive environmental, health and economic outcomes. A TRUE-certified project’s goal is to divert all solid waste from the landfill, incineration (including waste-to-energy) and the environment.

The TRUE certification programme helps projects define, pursue and achieve their zero waste goals, cutting their carbon footprint and supporting public health. The certification goes beyond diversion numbers and focuses on the upstream policies and practices that make zero waste successful in any organisation and beyond.

TRUE-certified spaces and events are environmentally responsible, more resource efficient and help turn waste into savings and additional income streams. By closing the loop, they cut greenhouse gases, manage risk, reduce litter and pollution, reinvest resources locally, create jobs and add more value for their organization and community.

TRUE-certified projects:

Save money: Waste is a sign of inefficiency and the reduction of waste reduces costs.

Progress faster: A zero waste strategy improves upon production processes and environmental prevention strategies, which can lead to larger, more innovative steps.

Support sustainability: A zero waste strategy supports the triple bottom line – people, planet and profit.

Improve material flows: A zero waste strategy uses fewer new raw materials and sends no waste materials to landfills, incineration (including waste-to-energy) and the environment.

THE ONE-DAY TRAINING

Not ready yet for a big commitment? Team building event to plan? Invite us in for a one-day training for you and your staff to learn more about the issue with waste and simple steps to become more eco-friendly.

 

The training will increase the level of knowledge about the issue of waste within your business or organisation and thereby help your company/organisation comply with new rules and regulations. Your employees will be more likely to follow best practices if they understand the importance of compliance.

 

The training courses consist of interactive meetings for the participants with presentations from experts and working sessions in smaller groups. The learning sessions are designed to be dynamic and participative. In that perspective, the training material comprises presentations coupled with group activities and debates allowing participants to apply and reflect on the concepts presented in the presentations. Videos are also included in some of the presentations and objects will be brought in for illustrative purposes.

The training will cover topics such as the issue with waste, an introduction to zero-waste principles and provide you with a clear roadmap on how to implement impactful and durable changes in your company/organisation.

We will also give you the keys to effectively involve and motivate your staff, to communicate effectively on your achievements, and to measure and assess your progress.

WASTE AUDITING 

A waste audit is a visual analysis of waste quantities, composition and systems to give an overarching understanding of problems and also identify potential opportunities for your organisation. A waste assessment may be undertaken to:

Determine the quantity and type of waste being generated;

Provide a baseline against which to measure your waste reduction progress;

Measure performance against current waste plans and targets;

Identify areas of non-compliance;

Review efficiency of waste and recycling systems;

Identify opportunities for cost savings and efficiency gains;

Identify potential areas of exposure and risk.

Waste audits can reveal costly, wasteful problems but also unlock new opportunities for your business or organisation. They are essential for maximizing the effectiveness of your programmes, measuring success, and improving operations.

In other words, a waste audit is the first and possibly most important step in your waste reduction project. In this perspective, Little Green Spark will not only conduct your waste audit but also formulate tailored recommendations in terms of waste reduction, reuse, recycling and composting to allow your business or organisation to drastically reduce its waste.

Expected results

The host organisation has a clear picture of its waste output in terms of quantity and waste streams;

The host organisation is provided with a baseline against which to measure its waste reduction progress;

The host organisation is provided with clear recommendations on how to proceed to reduce its waste output and better manage its waste.
