Waste management dashboard standardises processes for a major European automotive part supplier

Our customer for this project is an international producer of automotive components with over 10,000 employees operating 300 sites throughout Europe. As an industry leader and trusted partner, our customer has established a solid track record for supplying reliable automotive parts, meeting the challenging and adapting sustainability agendas of their customers. A large amount of the waste that is generated at their sites is textiles such as carpet and cardboard as well as some hazardous and general waste.
The mission
Our customer's primary goal was to improve their environmental performance across their European manufacturing sites. By partnering with a resource management specialist our customer wanted to develop a standardised approach that maximises recycling volumes and ensures that waste management performance is consistent at all sites.
Our solution

SUEZ.scope™ worked with the customer at their manufacturing sites in three European countries, drawing on local compliance and operational expertise, to identify key measures enabling waste management standardisation and driving stakeholder engagement.

 

A report was generated for each site, which outlined areas where improvements could be implemented to adhere to the new European working standard.

 

In addition, each site was given access to a dashboard where they can compare their current and historic performance against the rest of the group.

The results

Thanks to a dashboard developed by SUEZ.scope™, any issues at a site level can be highlighted, actioned and communicated to all stakeholders, allowing changes to be made instantly and minimising the impact on operations. The actions can be tracked by our customer's corporate team and reported at group level to provide a group-wide performance comparison. This approach ensures best practice is quickly and effectively shared and adopted by all sites.

 

The collaboration between SUEZ.scope™ and our customer highlighted common problem areas across the sites, meaning training and procedural support can now be developed for site leaders to implement.

 

Investment decisions can now be made based on evidence which allows funds allocation based on site priorities. The dashboard will be incorporated into a group-wide performance reporting, which is regularly shared with, and monitored by the European Operational Director.
