In 1979, the Dutch politician Ad Lansink introduced a motion for a better standard in waste management. His idea was later on referred to as ‘the hierarchy of waste’, because it prioritizes waste processing on what’s most favourable for the evironment. The concept of “Lansink’s Ladder” is shown as follows:
Today more than ever, our planet’s resources are under pressure and sustainability is imposing itself on the agenda of governments and large corporates. The Flemish government for example, has the ambition to make all public tenders 100% sustainable by 2020, where the accent will be on professionalization, innovation, sustainability and access to SMB’s.
Our mission at BE Networks is to help companies of all sizes, across different industries, finding out how they can adopt this pressing need for sustainability in their procurement strategy. Empowered by a state-of-the-art refurbish process, we already make thousands of products available for re-use each year, which are ship to more than 5.000 end-users worldwide.
In order to stay up-to-date about the whole circular economy, BE Networks is an active participant of different topic-related events across Europe. Just recently the BE management team was invited to join the economic mission of the Dutch government together with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima to the Duchy of Luxemburg for example. By attending events like this, we gain new insights, we can keep our customers posted on relevant facts and we can proactively adapt to business-specifc policies.
