R&D in Zero Waste

Industry Spotlight

How might a zero waste company benefit from R&D tax relief?

Welcome to the world of zero waste! As a zero waste shop company, you're dedicated to promoting sustainable practices, minimising waste, and making a positive impact on the environment. But have you ever considered the role of Research and Development (R&D) in furthering your mission? R&D can be a game-changer for your company, providing numerous benefits that go beyond just reducing waste.

Some examples of projects and activities that could qualify for research and development tax relief include:

R&D can help in the development of innovative and eco-friendly products that align with the zero waste philosophy. 

This can involve creating new packaging materials, exploring alternative ingredients or designing reusable and compostable products.

R&D can contribute to the development of sustainable packaging solutions, such as biodegradable or compostable packaging materials, reusable containers or innovative packaging designs that minimise environmental impact.

R&D can help optimize the supply chain processes, reducing inefficiencies and minimising waste at each stage.

This can involve exploring new transportation methods, improving inventory management systems, or implementing smart technologies for tracking and monitoring products.

R&D efforts can focus on finding effective ways to reduce waste generation within the company’s operations.

This can include optimising supply chain processes, implementing recycling and composting systems or developing innovative waste management techniques.
