In simple terms, we identify your business by-products, wastes and other under-utilised resources that are useful for others. These materials can be used by another organisation either in the same condition or reprocessed for a different use.
BASIS (Birmingham and Solihull Industrial Symbiosis Project) is a business initiative, but it also makes environmental sense. Waste costs money and new waste reduction methods provide economic and environmental benefits, while improving business growth.
We provide 12 hours of FREE consultancy services through our BASIS Resource Efficiency Project.
There are no charges to your company, as the project is fully supported by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBS LEP). An initial consultation will take place, to establish and identify all available resources within your organisation and record your current disposal, time management and energy costs. Our aim is to use this information to target cost reduction and new revenue opportunities to support your journey into becoming a more resource efficient and cost effective business.
