Following the initial launch of the CPMA Waste Efficiency Tool in January 2020, the association has now deployed a new interface to support its member companies’ waste reduction objectives. The online resource provides businesses with a proven means to generate high returns on investment by addressing waste and recurring procedural problems in a structured manner. Businesses having already used the tool have improved their bottom line by at least 10 percent.
The online tool has been redesigned in order to streamline the processes required in each step of the tool. Changes to the tool include:
Presented in 14 easy-to-navigate steps, the Waste Efficiency Tool applies processes and techniques that are commonly used at the start of a continuous process improvement initiative. Examples of inefficiencies that the tool helps to address include food waste (products/produce), equipment failure, lost production, energy, labour, packaging, transportation and more.
Outcomes achieved by businesses that have completed the online resource include:
The CPMA Waste Efficiency Tool is exclusively available to CPMA members. Members can access the tool at efficiency.cpma.ca. Non-member companies interested in accessing the tool can learn more about CPMA membership at cpma.ca/membership.
