  • Business Resource Efficiency Guide - Resource Efficiency for Managers

    WRAP has produced this guide to help health, safety and environment managers; or others with management responsibilities to improve the efficiency of their organisation’s use of resources – e.g. raw materials, water, energy – as a means of improving the performance of their business.

    Good resource efficiency practices are based on the ‘waste hierarchy’ and structured around a system of continual improvement with the aim of saving money and reducing environmental impact. This involves a number of key tasks including assessing current waste and material consumption levels, identifying areas for improvement, setting and implementing actions, and monitoring and reviewing their success.

    Most of a manager’s time is dedicated to delivering the core activities of the organisation and matters such as resource efficiency may seem like an unnecessary distraction. However, managing resources efficiently and reducing waste is an important part of a successful organisation and there are many reasons why a manager should get involved. These are explained in this guide.

    This guide offers practical advice on getting a resource efficiency programme started and suggests some ‘quick wins’ to help.
