Bridgepoint Group continues to diversify its client base and expand its Innovation Advisory service offer. BridgePoint Group is set to oversee possible funding and R&D incentives for the Waste Motive initiative.
Endorsed by the NSW Government, the Waste Motive initiative brings together automotive industry leaders, community groups and government departments to help manage the automotive industry’s plastic waste.
“Our involvement in this initiative aligns well with our company values. We’re not chaining ourselves to trees but we do think Australian businesses have a role to play by minimising their impact on the environment.”
“So, we’re really looking forward to working on the Waste Motive initiative and looking to maximise the R&D funding the project can secure. As well, working with the task force on innovations over the next 12 months which will have a positive effect on the car repair industry and how it treats its waste outputs.” Neil Parker, MD, BridgePoint Group.
Over the next 12 months, initiatives include waste parts sharing and green credits mobile application. The collision industry will be able to trade usable plastic parts (headlights and bumpers etc) instead of sending them to landfill.
Suzanne Pierce (Director Policy Science & Research – Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer) will monitor the initiative. Ingrid Marsh (Director Industry Development, Trade, Tourism, Investment and Precincts) is a task force representative.
BridgePoint’s Alan Baghdasarayan will take a seat on the task force, sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with NSW Government representatives and the likes of industry leaders including PPG, Axalta and insurance group Suncorp.
