Take action on waste with our waste prevention plan

Measured your waste-line? Once you know what your business is wasting, it's time to take action using our free waste prevention plan template.


The waste prevention plan template is designed as a working document to be updated and reviewed on a regular basis. It includes all you need to make positive changes, including:

  • Drivers for change – environmental (reduce landfill), economic (make financial savings), and social (motivate staff)
  • Task assignment – ensuring each innovation/change has a member of staff responsible for it
  • Baseline and target – that is, where you are now and where you want to be in future

Our waste prevention plan is a great tool for communicating your aims and commitments within your organisation and to the wider community, including stakeholders and customers. It also acknowledges staff input and paves the way for further improvement.
