Sustainablity in Action

Paper originally delivered at the BSSA Conference 'Stainless Solutions for a Sustainable Future' held in Rotherham on 3rd April 2003. This paper details the sustainable development project set up in South Yorkshire, at the Shepcote Lane site of AvestaPolarit Ltd. The project has been at an embryonic stage for about two years, but its birth is now imminent. The project is an example of how unrelated industries and social inclusion projects can come together to the benefit of all parties. The paper details how the not-for-profit organization, the Green Business Network has brought together the textile and stainless steel industries, in a scheme, which includes the recycling of industrial and municipal waste, as part of a social inclusion venture.
