Motivations

 

Many businesses do not realize how much money they lose in wasted materials, energy and water, or through handling, storing and disposing of waste materials. Large and small businesses can save money by introducing cleaner production.

Cleaner production:

  • Saves on raw materials and energy, reducing production costs.
  • Increases competitiveness through the use of new and improved technologies.
  • Reduces the need for more environmental regulation.
  • Reduces risk from on- and off-site treatment, storage and disposal of toxic wastes.
  • Improves health and safety of employees.
  • Improves staff morale, leading to better productivity.
  • Improves a company’s public image.
  • Reduces the cost of increasingly expensive end-of-pipe solution.
