Every company inevitably generates waste. For sure, at least once you’ve faced the question “What to do with the old office furniture and supplies”? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Reusing is the second effective solution after solid waste reduction when it comes to addressing waste management issues. Those who reuse with little or no processing keep materials out of the waste stream by passing the goods they’ve collected on to others. We believe that this approach can be incorporated into the daily practice of citizens and businesses.
Considering the EBA business network, we see great potential in establishing a platform where your old desks, chairs, filing cabinets, credenzas, shelving units, tape dispensers, notebooks and other equipment and supplies can find their new users.
In this regard, the EBA would like to invite you to the meeting where we are going to speak about a new initiative to be launched – the EBA Second Chance Bank. This meeting will be interesting for business owners, facility managers, sustainability managers, building owners and other stakeholders, and will let you have a look at a new possibility for improving waste management and enhancing sustainability.
The meeting is scheduled for 9 June, at 12:00 and will be streamed via Zoom.us.
At the meeting we will present the concept of the EBA Second Chance Bank, namely:
- Who can benefit from reuse?
- Set up of the EBA new multi-industrial committee
- Launch a website for used items.
