Organisation Benefits from Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, most organisations (big and small) are experiencing negative economic and social impacts.

Taking care of materials, energy, water, waste and emissions makes good business sense. Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) is the way to achieve this. RECP covers the application of preventive management strategies that increase the productive use of natural resources, minimize generation of waste and emissions, and foster safe and responsible production. Benefits are eminent in many organisations, regardless of sector, location or size.

Organisations that adopt RECP “do more with less”; they increase the efficiency with which they use materials and energy, they improve their productivity and thus their competitiveness. At the same time, through greater efficiency, organisations reduce the amount of pollution and waste they generate, thus lowering their impact on the environment, including their carbon footprint. As waste and emissions reduce, and hazardous substances are eliminated, the risks of industrial operations to workers, communities and consumers reduce.

Briefly saying, organizations that implement RECP methods, practices and technologies are gaining triple benefit

  • Enhancing the efficient use of natural resources including water, energy and materials;
  • Minimization of the impact on environment and nature, by preventing the generation of waste and emissions including those discharged to water, air or on land;
  • Minimization of risks to people and communities from the use of chemicals and safe disposal of chemicals used in industry.
