This in-depth guide provides an overview of how to ensure materials, energy and water are used more efficiently while minimising business waste.
In recent years, more and more businesses have begun to consider the effect of their activities on the environment, with the result that resource efficiency – namely using materials, energy and water more efficiently and minimising waste – is now a key priority for many organisations.
