At Work: No Waste is Best Waste
Waste means goods that have been purchased with money: product and raw material wastage, packaging, fitments, appliances, and instruments. For waste you pay when purchasing and during disposal. Reducing waste saves both costs and the environment.
Operations can be boosted, quality improved and money saved by reducing waste. HSY has collected information on best practices to reduce waste in different fields. Six different operations models, Smart Ways of Action models, are available in Finnish free of charge. Read more about the Smart Ways of Action guides and checklists.
What you do not know, is difficult to manage. The reduction of waste amount starts with the defining of material flows and waste amounts. The cost-free Petra Waste Benchmarking service offered by HSY is a tool for tracing and comparing the waste amounts generated by companies and public services in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.
