When The John Lewis Partnership were seeking independent specialist support to assure compliance with the recently introduced requirement of compliance with the Waste Hierarchy, they turned to Beyond Waste to help. We designed an auditing programmed for the whole estate ranging from retail stores, through to distribution depots and manufacturing plants. We audited a sample of each and identified possible points of exposure with recommendations for addressing. We produced a compliance guidebook and developed a series of simple questions that might be asked in the course of routine fire inspections. This was rolled out across the whole estat5e. We also produced a waste flows mapping tool.

What our client said:

“We chose the right specialist consultancy to do the job.”

Mike Walters: Waste Manager, The John Lewis Partnership

On the back of successful delivery of this commission we were also commissioned to undertake independent audits of Site Waste Management Plans being produced by contractors to the Partnership in the expansion of The Partnerships national network of stores. This partly came from a concern that the corporate targets relating to landfill diversion may not be being met.
We reviewed SWMPs and conducted site audits and then fedback to the central function with recommendations on how waste control of projects might be improved on the ground and how a template SWMP might be developed and rolled out across the body of contractors used by the Partnership to assure compliance and consistency.

What our client said:

"With a meticulous eye for detail, Beyond Waste surveyed our sites and provided a very thorough report which gave us a strong starting position to take projects forward."
