Resource efficiency: carbon, water and waste measurement and reduction

Investing in energy, water and waste efficiency can provide significant financial benefits while enhancing your organisation’s reputation. 


In our experience, resource cost reductions of at least 15% can be achieved while generating attractive returns within compelling payback periods. The challenge, however, is in knowing where to look for these opportunities and in building the case for investment.

How we can help

Our team of experts can help you take the first step towards building a business case and assessing the benefits of cutting carbon and improving resource management. 

We’ll advise on best practice, based on our extensive expertise and experience of working with large private and public sector organisations. We’ll then provide you with an efficient review of opportunities and likely returns. 

Our approach 

We begin by assessing the characteristics of your organisation’s resource consumption and waste levels, working with you to establish a top-down analysis of cost, carbon, waste and water reduction opportunities. This can be used by senior management to determine how to allocate further focus in order to pursue these opportunities. 

The review can include: 

  • Kick-off meeting with relevant managers to establish the scope and characteristics of the organisation, and broader business objectives 
  • Collation of energy, waste and water consumption data 
  • Modelling of resource and cost saving opportunities 
  • Sizing and quantification of the opportunity (total savings, capex requirements/upfront cost, ROI) 
  • Recommendations for focusing and prioritising investment 

Building on this, our team of implementation experts can then help you source suppliers, the required finance and the best equipment to help deliver your objectives.
