Rising CO2 Levels: What Your Business Can Do To Help



Protecting our environment and reducing the effects of global warming is an ongoing and challenging task. Many of our clients ask, ‘as a business, what can we do to make a difference?’ feeling that making real change can often seem insurmountable. This is where we can help. 


Nationwide’s team of specialists works with each of our clients to simplify this complex process. We offer guidance, advice, and waste management services to ensure sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do. 

Our solutions prioritise the environment above all else, because we believe it should come before profit. There’s no point putting a solution in place if the environmental legacy is awful.


Our customers trust us to consistently strive for cleaner and greener practices. It’s about acting now to ensure a better tomorrow.


Here are some examples of what that could mean:


Sustainable waste management lowers greenhouse gas emissions, which aids in the fight against global warming. 

One example of this is making compost instead of sending organic waste to landfill. Composting organic waste reduces the amount of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, produced during its aerobic breakdown as opposed to landfilling it. 


By lowering the demand for new production, recycling materials helps to save energy and lower carbon emissions. 


In addition, waste-to-energy techniques can provide renewable energy, which reduces the need for fossil fuels and slows down global warming. Our environmentally friendly waste management techniques and services will help reduce your carbon footprint and combat global warming.




At Nationwide Waste, we believe in connecting innovative techniques and advancements in the waste management industry that address today’s problems to create a better tomorrow for all. 


Recycling, a vital component of waste management, helps lessen the effects of climate change and cut greenhouse gas emissions dramatically. 

How this impacts atmospheric carbon dioxide levels?


Materials such as cardboard, paper, food scraps, wood, and other organic materials that are disposed of in landfills break down in an oxygen-free atmosphere known as an anaerobic environment. This then makes methane, which is a greenhouse gas that is much stronger than carbon dioxide.


Methane emissions from organic waste can be avoided by reusing or composting materials rather than disposing of them in landfills. 


Paper, cardboard, and wood recycling lowers the demand for new production, preserving resources and energy while lowering manufacturing-related carbon emissions. 


Food waste composting reduces methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition and improves soil health by converting organic matter into nutrient-rich soil additives. Our organic waste collection and timber waste collection services are key for many clients in reuse and recycling for a clean, green future. 


Work with our team to reduce your carbon footprint, preserve resources, and create a more sustainable future for generations to come by integrating appropriate waste management techniques.




Taking the lead in creating a cleaner environment necessitates all-encompassing CO2 emission reduction plans that include efficient liquid and hazardous waste management. If handled improperly, hazardous waste, which includes chemicals, solvents, oils, and other dangerous materials, poses serious threats to the environment and human health. 


Comparably, pollutants that negatively affect ecosystems and water quality can also be found in liquid waste, such as effluent from industrial activities. Through the application of our carbon reduction strategies in the handling of hazardous and liquid waste, you can reduce your ecological impact and make a positive contribution to a sustainable future.

Our strategies for waste minimisation and recycling initiatives are two important ways that hazardous waste management can lower CO2 emissions for your business. 


We can show you how to minimise the requirement for raw material extraction and manufacture, which lowers CO2 emissions related to resource consumption, by streamlining production processes to reduce the generation of hazardous waste and putting in place recycling programmes to recover valuable materials.


To avoid dangerous materials from leaking into the environment, hazardous waste must be properly treated and disposed of. When compared to conventional disposal techniques like landfilling or incineration, the use of sophisticated treatment technologies, such as thermal treatment or chemical oxidation, can aid in the neutralisation of hazardous substances and lower CO2 emissions. At Nationwide we adhere to all government regulations for sustainable waste management and specifically reducing emissions from waste


It’s a dialogue rather than a one-way street or production line that will lead to a greener tomorrow, and we want everyone to participate in this discussion. Our relationships with clients define the nature of our work, and we pay attention to every detail, where even small adjustments have a significant impact and where being honest with one another and acting with integrity facilitates the path forward for everyone involved.


A further way to lessen the amount of liquid waste produced and the environmental impact of wastewater treatment procedures is to encourage water conservation and reuse techniques. You and your business can set the standard for environmental sustainability and reduce your carbon footprint in the handling of hazardous and liquid waste by making investments in infrastructure improvements and implementing cutting-edge technologies. 


The Nationwide team can guide you and provide a tailor made strategy to suit your needs. In partnership with our team, we can help you set the stage for a cleaner future by demonstrating a commitment to sustainability and environmental excellence through proactive measures and continuous improvement programmes.




To counteract climate change and lessen its detrimental consequences for the environment and human health, sustainable medical waste management is imperative. Incorrect collection and handling of medical waste can lead to the spread of illnesses and contamination of ecosystems. Medical waste comprises hazardous items such as medications, sharps, and infectious waste. Health care organisations can reduce their carbon footprint and help with global efforts to combat climate change by employing sustainable practices in medical waste management.


Certain materials that must be disposed of properly in sustainable medical waste management to combat climate change include:


  • Sharps: Needles, syringes, and lancets must be disposed of correctly, or you risk danger of needle stick and infection. Puncture-resistant containers and autoclaving or incineration are safe disposal techniques.
  • Infectious Waste: To stop the transmission of illness, items contaminated with blood, bodily fluids, or infectious agents, such as bandages, gauze, and gloves, must be separated and cleaned using sterilisation or disinfection techniques.
  • Pharmaceuticals: To avoid contaminating the environment and lower the possibility of abuse or unintentional ingestion, expired or unused pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical items should be gathered and disposed of securely.
  • Laboratory Waste: To avoid polluting the environment and exposing people to dangerous compounds, chemicals, reagents, and laboratory equipment contaminated with hazardous substances must be handled and disposed of in accordance with legal regulations.
  • Radiological Waste: To reduce radiation exposure and avoid contaminating the environment, items contaminated with radioactive materials, such as protective gear, medical devices, and diagnostic equipment, need to be disposed of using specific waste management techniques.
  • Pathological Waste: To stop the spread of infections and safeguard the public’s health, tissues, organs, and other anatomical specimens created during medical procedures or research activities should be managed and disposed of in compliance with biohazardous waste standards.

Fostering a culture of environmental best practice requires educating clients and staff about sustainable waste management techniques. 


Our Nationwide team can help you to empower your team to make environmentally responsible decisions and support group efforts to mitigate climate change by educating them about the significance of waste reduction, segregation, and correct disposal. Our clients trust us to consistently strive for cleaner and greener practices. It’s about acting now to ensure a better tomorrow.
