Environmental responsibility has become increasingly present in corporate strategies, which not only ensure greater consumer satisfaction but also ensure the prevention of penalties ranging from fines to activity suspensions.
With the approval of new policies for solid waste, waste should only be disposed of in sanitary landfills, for example, when all possibilities of reuse have been exhausted.
As a result, practical sustainability actions have begun to be applied on a larger scale in waste-generating industries, aiming to make their activities less impactful on the environment and in accordance with current regulations.
The recycling goal is an example of a sustainable action that can be incorporated into industries in general and is capable of generating benefits such as:
- Cost reduction through obtaining raw materials;
- Revenue generation from the sale of waste;
- Gaining credibility with society;
- Compliance with environmental legislation;
- Increased productivity.
For the implementation of a recycling goal, it is necessary to first consider whether the stipulated goal can be achieved within a specific period of time. It is important to set an achievable goal to ensure that the involved team does not lose motivation.
Furthermore, having tools that assist in managing what is generated and how waste is treated within the company makes a difference in achieving objectives. myWaste is a digital platform that monitors waste generation and traceability within companies, providing reports and indicators that allow for monitoring important data for both the company and environmental agencies.
