With nearly 50,000 construction enterprises in Scotland and over 4 million tonnes of waste produced in 2014 (latest figures available), the construction sector is the single largest waste producer in Scotland.
Resource Efficient Scotland provides fully funded Government support for all construction businesses. Our Advice and Support team can help you become more efficient by reducing waste and resources. This can help make your more competitive and save money.
Support is available for projects at all phases of the construction process, and includes:
1. Onsite opportunity assessments: including waste prevention and reuse site walkovers, supply chain partnerships, and designing out waste workshops.
2. Detailed opportunity assessments: including detailed business case and implementation support, and problem material analysis.
3. Capital grant funding and loans: available for those who have been through the opportunity assessment process
4. Training: including employee training such as opportunity assessment shadowing, technical workshops, and web based tools.
