At Link International Inc., it’s our goal to provide green solutions to companies attempting to cut down on the amount of waste sent to landfills. In fact, helping organizations reach zero landfill and meeting government compliance is a big part of our overall mission. To do this, we’ve identified three key roles essential to the success of a waste management initiative. Our program works by linking these roles together to streamline the process and foster healthy communication within an organization.
The three players in the sustainability chain include:
Most high-level executives are too busy to focus all of their attention on a waste management program. However, they act as the ultimate decision maker when it comes to the company’s sustainability initiative. This means they need to receive important information regarding the waste management program so they can determine if it’s right for the organization.
This person is the primary influencer of the sustainability program. It’s their job to communicate details of the waste management initiative to the CEO in an attractive, logical manner. Link International Inc. works closely with the sustainability officer and simplifies all tasks related to the program.
Without the hard work of the facility manager, a sustainability program won’t succeed. They must determine if safety issues, potential contamination, and problems with vendors and equipment exist. In addition, they must work with their warehouse staff to ensure all employees get the training they need.
This sustainability chain is what makes Link International Inc.’s program successful. If properly implemented, the program will foster sustainability leaders within the company who will work to maintain a high-functioning waste management process.
Throughout the lifecycle of a waste management program, a company will need to appoint sustainability champions. These employees are chosen by the facilities manager and must promote the program and work to gain buy-in from the warehouse staff. As leaders, it’s their job to ensure accountability with regard to waste management procedures. They must also boost employee morale in an effort to make waste reduction and sustainability the driving forces behind a company’s operation.
