WRAP’s Welsh operation and the Carbon Trust have won contracts worth £1m to help public sector organisations and businesses become more resource efficient.
Organisations will receive support to reduce energy, water, resource use and waste. As well as cutting costs, the changes will contribute to Wales’ goals in terms of resource efficiency and sustainable development.
The collaboration will be delivered under the Welsh Government’s newly announced Resource Efficient Wales service and the two contracts, one for the public sector and one for businesses including third sector, are worth a total of £1,037,830 across an initial 18-month period.
Richard Rugg, managing director of programmes at the Carbon Trust, said: “For the past 12 years the trust has worked alongside the Welsh Government to help to cut nine million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions and deliver more than £700m in financial savings for thousands of Welsh companies and public sector bodies.”
WRAP director Marcus Gover, added: “We are delighted to announce that working in partnership WRAP Cymru and Carbon Trust have won the contracts to deliver resource efficiency support to Welsh public sector organisations and businesses of all sizes.
“Both have strong track records of helping organisations reap the benefits of using fewer resources.”
