United Kingdom – A new UK trade association, dubbed the Corporate Recycling Alliance (CRA), has been formed for enterprises committed to reducing, reusing and recycling their office-generated waste beyond the legal minimum.
′On occasion, it can be difficult for businesses to show they go beyond their legal duty of care when it comes to handling office-generated consumables,′ explains CRA′s director David Barnes. ′We aim to address this issue by offering membership to organisations which can meet the CRA′s own, tougher standards.′
The association is also committed to communicating its members′ views to policy-makers. ′CRA membership allows participants to send a clear message to clients, customers, government organisations and members of the public that they go beyond their legal minimum requirement to reduce, reuse and recycle their office waste,′ it is stressed.
Alongside its corporate membership, the CRA also runs an approved supplier scheme for companies engaged in office recycling services and associated activities. The scheme aims to connect such businesses directly with end users who are CRA members.
