LRS and Burges Salmon publish ‘practical’ guide to circular economy

A guide containing practical tips and case studies on resource efficiency strategies for businesses has been released by LRS Consultancy and law firm Burges Salmon.

‘A Practical Path to Resource Efficiency’ provides examples on how manufacturers, retailers and brand managers and their supply chain partners can use materials and energy efficiently and what benefits arise from it.

Dee Moloney, managing director at LRS Consultancy, left, said: “The circular economy can be a bit theoretical and daunting for many businesses, so we wanted to produce a guide that can help them understand the practical steps they can take to improve resource efficiency within moving to a whole systems thinking and fully circular business model.”

She added that in many cases “less complex and lower cost approaches” than fully circular or closed loop supply chains could deliver significant benefits within a relatively short time.

Nick Churchward, partner in the energy and environment team at Burges Salmon, stressed the pragmatic nature of the guide.

“We provide guidance and advice on how to put the theory into practice, from assessing process efficiency to developing an on-site generation project,” he said.
