Novus Environmental Performance running at 97% Recycling /
Novus area office waste management performance has resulted in an overall company diversion from landfill rate running at 97%, 4% over our 5 year plan predicted target. So far this year over 3,000 tonnes of waste have been diverted from landfill and gone back into energy production or the manufacture of new products. Energy use is a key focus area within the business and is managed through all offices submitting their meter readings on a monthly basis. Energy use is reducing across the business as as a result of improved management and with the switchover to a more cost effective tariff this has saved a considerable amount of money too! Novus offices recieve support from our environment manager and involve her at the planning stage of new work to better manage the waste being removed from contracts. This is not only producing cost savings but increasing recycling rates.
