In times of economic uncertainty and government austerity measures, resource efficiency can play a vital role in unlocking cost savings and profitability. It can reduce carbon emission and achieve efficiencies if only businesses had the appropriate information and focus to take action. Firms are failing to understand what the true cost of waste is for their business and the likely impact it could have on improving competitiveness.
The Gershon Efficiency Review 2003 for the public sector and the Stern Review 2006 have both made clear links to the financial benefits from resource efficiency. They are guiding key government policies for efficiencies in public procurement and services. Similarly, businesses are also encouraged to focus on inefficient use of raw materials, energy and water to meet legislation, satisfy corporate responsibility objectives and secure competitiveness. However, while many businesses want to achieve resource efficiency and stay ahead of their competitors, few know where to begin.
