sustainable use of materials

year to a co-product that we sell for an annual
income in excess of £200k, this action has acted
to meet the supply-chain goals of our key

avoid negative env / soc consequences, provide a
net positive contribution
RES: Security

“Without a clear view of supply risks and an
active and ambitious strategy to manage those
risks, businesses will be increasingly
vulnerable to price volatility, supply chain
disruption and business continuity risks”

materials business relies upon across supply-chain

• Develop networks to further understanding & co-ordinate action
• Explore opportunities to improve value of materials
Case study: Rolls-Royce REVERT

replenish supply
• Real Action:
“We see closed loop innovation as a major
business opportunity”
Becky Coffin, MIEMA, Kingfisher

delivering orders...helps differentiate our
business in a competitive market”
Toby Robins, AIEMA, Wiles Greenworld

Advice on Action
Getting Started

through review of case studies and value-chain engagement
Ramping up
