Recent Experience

Daniel’s recent work has focused on helping organisations move towards more resource efficient business models that:

He has delivered a range of waste prevention and resource efficiency reviews, primarily with the manufacturing, commercial and retail sectors. These focus on operational audits and data analysis to understand existing practices, sources and causes of inefficiencies and waste, before identifying potential improvement options and their costs and benefits. This has led to him developing a range of good practice tools, case studies and practical guides to aid organisations improve their resource efficiency.
