Resource Efficiency

Resource efficiency means using the Earth's limited resources in a sustainable manner while minimising impacts on the environment. It allows us to create more with less and to deliver greater value with less input.
Sustainable resource management (SRM), at an organisational level, is the concept of businesses taking responsibility and action for the selection, sourcing, usage and re-use of the materials they use. This relates to both their direct operations and across their value-chain, including: suppliers; customers; and other interested parties.
