Making money out of waste management

Who for? Publicly listed mining firm

What we did:

Mining operations produce waste and businesses have regulatory obligations to manage this. This is often viewed as a strict liability, but this client wanted to explore options to improve the business (triple) bottom line.

We undertook an analysis, which considered a range of options for waste disposal, reprocessing and onselling and produced forecast scenarios to test the best approach to acheive positive cash flow. This took into acocunt local market conditions, and all scenarios maintained complete regualtory obligations.

The model scenarios took a 20 year strategic view, and were able to be updated, so that strategy and tactics could change as the external and internal business conditions changed.
