For businesses, making sure every employee understands their waste management responsibilities can be challenging – particularly with staff changes, multiple and remote sites and people at different levels of their training journey. SUEZ supports your business with education and training programs that boost your sustainability culture and performance.
Supporting your employees to meet your sustainability goals
A waste management system relies on people to minimise waste volumes and contamination and maximise recycling. We can help you drive a positive shift in the behaviour of your employees with customised, engaging and accessible education programs.
Reaping the rewards
Educating employees in waste management best practices, such as what waste goes in which bin, risks, safety and environmental benefits, can drive a real shift in behaviour. With this comes improvements in diversion, reductions in costs and greater safety outcomes.
Change by design
Developing a program that works for your business requires a full understanding of the people and places involved in your waste management practices. We identify and consult with key stakeholders such as your employees, subcontractors and suppliers to make sure we get the full picture. We then develop appealing, targeted behavioural change programs customised to your unique situation, using engaging digital and on-site communications tools and placing helpful resources at key waste generation points. We assess and reassess as we go to measure and optimise impact on your waste diversion.
A multi-faceted approach to education and training
SUEZ has extensive experience in developing effective waste management education programs and systems, providing our customers with everything they need to make sustainability excellence second nature.
Bright, simple signage
Engaging signage at the point of waste generation and collection is a powerful tool for employee education. SUEZ has bin stickers and a range of posters in defined waste stream colours to help people separate and sort waste into the right bins, delivering reduced contamination and greater recycling. Each poster can be customised and co-branded to meet your needs. You can view some examples of our poster templates below.
