This roundtable provides members with the opportunity to discuss how the industry deals with waste management and how it recycles and ultimately aims to reduce waste. This discussion is with peers and the BPIF to work to source best practice, solutions and support moving forward.

This roundtable focuses on Waste Management, Reduction and Recycling and will include a presentation by the following experts and conclude with a Q&A and open discussion. 

Matthew Peacock, Process Improvement Expert and BPIF Affiliate Consultant

Matthew is a graduate manufacturing engineer with 40 years senior management and consulting experience. In 2003 Matthew become a founder Lean Specialist with Vision in Print.  He is particularly interested in helping companies to increase profits and reduce environmental impact by minimising waste.

Most printers know that reducing material waste is fundamental to reducing our impact on the environment. But many printing companies don’t realise that reducing material waste can be one of the quickest and most effective ways to improve profits.

In this presentation I will show how a typical printer took practical steps to reduce material waste that resulted in annual savings of over £100,000.
