Resource Efficiency Services

All businesses recognise that they could be more efficient in what they do, regardless of the nature of their activities. Improving efficiency can deliver a range of benefits, including:

  • Reduced operating costs
  • Improved delivery times
  • Greater competitiveness
  • Improved customer satisfaction

SLR recognises the importance of these to businesses, and has developed a suite of resource efficiency services to support our clients in achieving them, and also delivering environmental sustainability improvements. This aligns with overall business objectives and fulfils stakeholder expectations. In many cases, improving resource efficiency is a regulatory requirement, for example as a condition of an environmental permit, or of specific legislation such as the packaging waste regulations. Regulatory pressure for improved efficiencies and waste reduction will only increase, as a result of the EU’s Circular Economy programme and the UK Government’s determination to increase the competitiveness of UK industry and commerce.

SLR provides the following services in resource efficiency:

  • Gaining senior management support for resource efficiency
  • Developing a resource efficiency programme
  • Undertaking pilot studies and audits
  • Identifying cost-effective and practical improvement initiatives
  • Developing business cases and implementation plans
  • Modifying management system processes to deliver change
  • Providing internal communications materials to encourage uptake of initiatives
  • Training and mentoring internal resource efficiency champions
  • Verifying environmental benefits and cost reductions
