Sustainability has become embedded into the core values of our clients. As such, Don’t Waste views our client’s sustainability journey as a partnership, often yielding award-winning results.
Our client, Liberty 2 Degrees (L2D), has been on a two-year journey to obtain the prestigious Green Star Certification, developed by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA). This accreditation recognises strides made in the environmental and sustainability aspects of the design, construction, and operation of a building, interior fit-outs, and precincts.
Don’t Waste was delighted to have guided the L2D group on the Waste Management and Compliance portion of the Green Star certification journey of their entire portfolio of retail centres and offices. Our expert experience was evident in our innovative thinking and genuine cross-disciplinary approach across the built environment, pioneering a new treatment option for waste which had not yet been used in the retail sector in South Africa.
The dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment from the L2D group, its stakeholders, tenants, and support from Don’t Waste, resulted in the entire retail portfolio receiving Green Star ratings, with a business precinct also achieving a phenomenal 6-star rating.
The innovative organic waste treatment options recommended by Don’t Waste helped the portfolio to realise the following savings:
In addition, our software systems allowed for the integration of the new on-site treatment options, into the standard service offering, ensuring the correct grades were sorted and checked. Don’t Waste also proposed a unique approach of sourcing material through cross customer engagement, which maximised the utilisation of the technology.
Complementing the technology were the monthly volume and environmental reporting, allowing for the easy management of the system as a whole, and showcasing the environmental and waste cost savings.
