Comprehensive waste modelling and analysis support
Service reviews and benchmarking
Ricardo monitors and benchmarks performance, and prepares operational action plans to help deliver improvements. Such reviews can be performed throughout the contract cycle, but are particularly valuable when a contract is coming up for review.
Our TEEP Assessment services are underpinned by our service review and benchmarking expertise and a robust waste collections model and TEEP assessment tool.
Waste sector carbon tool
Ricardo's bespoke carbon tool enables councils not only to evaluate their current performance, but also to test possible future interventions, to understand where their best saving opportunities may lie. Read more.
Waste market research
Ricardo consultants have been performing LCA studies for many years covering a large breadth of products including industrial equipment, vehicles, lighting, beer, toilets, packaging and paper products.
Life cycle assessment (LCA)
LCA is an established method for assessing the environmental (and sometimes social) impacts of a product, service, business, policy or process. Many of our clients opt for a high-level scoping LCA initially, and then use the findings to drive and focus follow up investigations.
Ricardo has the foremost team of WRATE practitioners in the UK, offering an unsurpassed track record of experience and an appreciation of the real world in terms of process performance.
