Measuring to manage your resources: Advice and support for organisations in Scotland

By Editor on 28th September 2016

This implementation guide from Resource Efficient Scotland, a programme from Zero Waste Scotland, describes how organisations can effectively measure and monitor their use of energy, water and raw materials, in order to identify patterns of wasteful behaviour and opportunities to reduce resource use, improve environmental performance and save money.  It provides a clear five-step guide:

  • Understand what is driving resource use; 
  • Identify data requirements; 
  • Collect data; 
  • Analyse and evaluate the data; 
  • Identify improvements and take action – with key performance indicators for specific sectors, links to useful tools, and case studies.
