Benefits of resource efficiency

1. Saves money – typically 1% of turnover (the true cost of waste is typically 4% of turnover)
2. Bottom line benefits – it’s easier to increase profitability by reducing costs than by increasing turnover
3. Short payback periods – many measures will deliver a benefit in a month or less, and continue to keep delivering month on month.
4. Typical savings are £1000/employee
5. Low cost/no cost measures yield big results
6. Business survival – the need to base your business on long-term sustainability – e.g. New Scientist study in 2007 –
