Business Resource Efficiency

Our report for Defra estimates potential savings to the UK economy from corporate resource efficiency interventions. Updating previous studies, we quantified savings of £5.7-7.2 billion for the UK economy from efficiency improvements related to water, energy, raw material consumption and waste generation. There is still work to be done for other sectors to ensure the challenge and ambition of possible savings are properly quantified. For companies, the message is that resource efficiency savings are still there to be made.
