Making the Business Case - ALL Resources Included!

Municipal council, Case study, University

Over the last few months, you may have seen us pumping out regular content with truly valuable and useful FREE downloads to say thanks for reading and being a part of the Warp It journey.

We want to be helpful, we want your reuse system to succeed and we want you to feel like Warp It is here to support you (which we are!).

The business case download

At the end of this article, we’ve compiled one downloadable folder that contains six of the best business cases for reuse that we could get our hands on. We spoke to dozens of our partners and their Warp It Leads, as well as those who went through a process by which they had to pitch the reuse idea and win support from senior management. These six were happy to share their stories and materials.

The value contained within these six documents is immense, and will no doubt hold the key to getting your project approved if that’s what stage you are at in your reuse journey.


The business case for reuse. Whose do we have?

The organizations who were happy to share their business cases are below, as well as some of the league table results that show just how well they proved their business case to be right!

    • 3rd highest total savings, 8th highest average monthly savings, 123.4x return on investment, 3rd highest carbon savings, 3rd highest waste avoided, 864 members, 3rd highest trades per month, 3rd most donations to charity.
  • Brighton University
    • More than £100,000 donated in assets to charity

  • North Tyneside Council

How to use these business cases

The most applicable use for the business cases is to provide the content as evidence in support of your reuse project. The other way to use them would be to study them and make yourself completely informed of all of the potential ways that reuse can help a business. It may be the case that whilst planning your approach, you failed to think of several ideas that others had considered.

Who better to help guide you on a successful reuse journey than those who already have the proof that it works.

My goal is where reuse & repair is so convenient and desirable, that organisations do not throw anything away or buy anything new.. Where reusable items are redistributed for their 2nd and 3rd useful lives and when the items fail, they are diverted into repair.
