    Hi All,
    Hope you can give your opinions.advice on this:
    During our last continued assessment, our auditor gave us an observation as we were using a skip during some refurbishment that we were undertaking:
    'Waste disposed of via skips used for ad-lib refurbishment works are currently not included in the company objective. Including these could give a more definitive outlook.'

    How would you include this in the environmental objectives? I don't see how it would give a more definitive outlook.
    What do you think?

    Thanks in advance.:confused:

    Huh? Reads like a consulting opinion to me... Ask your CB what the purpose of such a comment is and if it's normal to confuse clients like this...

    Does using skips change the way your waste is handled or counted?
