Scottish business urged to make a resource efficient pledge

Resource Efficient Scotland (RES) is encouraging more businesses to sign up to the Resource Efficiency Pledge to make better use of energy, water and raw materials.

The pledge is a commitment to complete a minimum of three actions during the course of 12 months, ranging from putting in place measures to reduce waste to engaging staff to cut their energy use.

More than 70 businesses including Network Rail, Gordon & MacPhail and the Edinburgh International Conference Centre have joined the scheme to date. 

RES, a Scottish Government-funded programme being delivered by Zero Waste Scotland, has a website which reinforces the message with a range of free support tools.

Marissa Lippiatt, head of RES, said: “Making resource efficiency a resolution for the new year doesn’t just benefit the environment, it can also lead to cost savings, improved staff skills and a competitive advantage for businesses.

“Setting these resolutions can help companies to focus their attention and form collective goals, making targets more achievable.”
