Randers Tegl Group is one of Northern Europe’s leading brick manufacturers. Within Randers Tegl Group, sustainabiliy and environment are significant benchmarks which are taken into account right from the offices to the raw production.
The company wanted to reduce its CO2 consumption related to waste management. Originally, the brickworks within the Randers Tegl Group had many small tipping containers around the facilities, which were often full and therefore regularly had to be unloaded by truck into a number of large outdoor containers. First of all, these processes took a huge amount of time from the employees’ more value adding activities. But more importantly, although the employees succeeded in sorting a large part of the waste, they experienced that when waste was collected, it was nevertheless loaded into the same waste truck and taken to incineration. In other words, operating practices were not consistent with the company’s principles-based approach to doing business.
