Scottish businesses are being encouraged to make a Resource Efficiency Pledge so that they can reap their share of an estimated £2.9bn worth of savings from using energy, water and raw materials more efficiently.

The scheme being delivered by Zero Waste Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government asks businesses to select three to six resource efficiency measures to be completed over the course of 12 months.

The Resource Efficiency Pledge is officially backed by the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, whose organising committee will promote it to Games’ venues and suppliers and to the Scottish events sector.

The Games’ largest precinct venue, the SCCC, is one of more than 70 businesses to have made a pledge, in its case to improve recycling rates and energy efficiency.
