Use your resources more efficiently - an overview

Efficiency is a key driver of profitability, but it's also central to running your business in an environmentally friendly way. Using resources - such as raw materials, packaging, energy and water - as efficiently as possible means that you are not only reducing your environmental impact but also saving your business money.

This guide outlines how to assess your current resource efficiency, and suggests ways of minimising waste and of reducing your consumption of energy, water and raw materials. It also explains the importance of taking a systematic approach and assessing the costs and benefits of improving the efficiency of your resource use.
