Our Environmental Strategy

Being ‘green’ is not a passing fad – most would agree it is a culture change vital to the future of our planet and its environmental systems. From a business perspective, rising energy and production costs, coupled with customer expectation and environmental legislation, mean it is now more important than ever for companies to work toward ever-more sustainable and ecologically-sound solutions.
 
This is more achievable than you may think.  Physical and process wastes and poor resource efficiency cost UK industry £15Bn per year: equivalent to some 4% of the total turnover. Obvious waste costs include solid and liquid wastes, and emissions to air, but many of the costs may be hidden – scrapped products, excess raw materials, excess packaging and poor processes can all incur avoidable, waste-related costs to a business.
 
Viable Ventures’ tailored solutions for resource efficiency and business improvement are underpinned by the principles of Lean Thinking, and our corresponding approach to eradicating Lean wastes result in cost savings, enhanced sustainability and significantly reduced environmental impact
of a business’ activity. 
               
               
Examples of how our integrated, knowledge-based solutions and strategies achieve this include the following:
 
Rework.  VV process solutions vastly reduce rework occurrences by enhancing intrinsic system quality to produce the product or service right first time, every time. Therefore, significantly less rework saves time and cuts the consumption of energy and materials.

Transportation.  VV process solutions vastly increase the efficiency and value-added component of clients’ business processes, which reduces the amount of supporting transportation activity required.

Inventory.  VV solutions enable clients to optimise, redistribute and reduce their stockpiles of raw material, spares and consumables. Consequently, this reduces the time, energy and material consumed; in turn, this also minimises the amount of supporting transportation activity required.

Over-Processing.  VV solutions enable clients to reduce the excess processing and inspection of their products or services; hence this saves their time and reduces the consumption of energy and materials.

Over-Production.  VV solutions enable clients to optimise production/
service output to customer requirements and enhance intrinsic system quality
to produce the product or service right first time, every time.  Consequently,
this minimises excess production undertaken for the sole justification of
‘just in case’.                  
               
               
Viable Ventures Ltd has adopted this overall approach as Company Policy; hence our staff are required to do their utmost to limit the environmental impact of their own business activity and to standardise and/or enhance processes in order to limit waste and increase sustainability. Ultimately, it follows that they will work towards solutions which benefit both their clients - in the short and long term - and our natural environment.
