Where are businesses now with sustainability?

In 2021, the government announced the Sustainability disclosure (SDR’s) which set the ‘ESG’ barometer for businesses to deliver sustainable operations for waste disposal and reporting.  

In addition, the Office of National Statistics, in June 2021, shared 38% of businesses reported that they were intending to act in response to Net Zero 2050 by reduction of their carbon footprint in June 2022. Many reasonable businesses are looking to deliver on net-zero much earlier than the governments targets with 2030 being a key date for many. 

In contrast there were 13% businesses in October 2022, who declared they were taking no action and were ‘unsure of how to measure their emissions’, which indeed supports a need for an effective ESG waste management strategy to deliver towards ‘ESG’ targets. 

In challenging times, where businesses are facing, supply chain challenges and higher running costs causing restraints on budget, there is no disputing that a waste management plan is important to reach ‘ESG’ critical success factors (CSF) and reduce costs to ensure ‘ESG’ growth and sustainable finance. 

A great ESG plan builds confidence in greener practices

A successful ‘ESG plan will eliminate the risks of ‘greenwashing, which happens when businesses talk about being greener, but don’t implement anything. A proactive ‘ESG’ friendly plan will build confidence and trust in greener processes and practices. It is essential businesses make reductions in carbon footprint and join the race towards Net Zero 2050 in their waste disposal operations.
