A better design of the products for a waste recovery : towards a Circular Economy !
What is the waste reduction?
The Waste reduction strategy is part of the sustainable development policy of the companies. But this often induced and sometimes initiated approach is insufficiently updated and optimized.
Similarly, the eco-design of products and services is now a known process by the industrialists but often poorly implemented. The environmental issues involve breakthrough innovation. They challenge the current business models: now any company has to integrate the Sustainable Development to reduce the environmental impacts generated by its activities and to integrate the reduction, the reuse and the recycling in its process design of its products and services. The principle of the packaging reduction and the eco-design of products are enshrined in the European framework Waste Directive n° 94/62/CE of the 12/20/94 which sets out the essential requirements.
Thus, alongside the Extended Producer Responsibility outcomes from the Grenelle de l’Environnement I & II laws and updated in the AGEC Law, it results waste reduction or prevention at the source obligations, the reuse, the recovery and the recycling of products or materials.
In a Circular Economy approach, E³ CONSEIL proposes to assist you in initiating, developing and perpetuating this strategy for your company and consequently ensures:
- The compliance with the regulations
- Some costs reduction
- The competitive advantage and the improving of the eco-friendly image of your company..
