Take part in Dundee City Council's Zero Waste Awards!


19th February 2021

Several years ago, Dundee City Council entered the Zero Waste Awards.

Set up in 2010, they have recently relaunched the scheme to reflect the growing environmental aspirations of organisations in today’s world and to provide winners with even more benefits and recognition.

They would now like to invite you to re-join the network of UK businesses that are driving change and contributing to a more sustainable society. The next entry deadline is 26th March 2021 and they have made the process of submitting an entry even easier than before.

To enter all you need to do is complete the online entry form via www.zerowasteawards.com/enter 

The new format also allows you to benchmark against similar businesses in your sector, so you can get an accurate picture of where you are on your journey! For a quick ‘health check’ on your organisation, our scheme partner Reconomy has created a handy tool which will give you an assessment in seconds. You can access this via the link below.

Dundee City Council

Dundee draws skilled workers from a 60-minute catchment population of 640,000 and has a local population of over 140,000. The availability of a large pool of highly skilled labour is a key feature in the Dundee economy. Flexibility in the labour force is currently more prevalent in Dundee than in Scotland as a whole. All forms of labour market flexibility - part-time, temporary employment, self-employment and shift work - are widely operational within the city. Labour force stability in the city is excellent, enabling companies to plan with confidence. Labour turnover levels are less than 5% and absenteeism averages 2%.
