About us

We help organisations reduce costs by saving energy and water, reducing raw materials use and managing waste efficiently.

Resource Efficient Scotland, launched in 2013, is a programme delivered by Zero Waste Scotland, our funding comes from the Scottish Government and the European Regional Development Fund. The programme offers free advice and technical support as well as the sharing of best practices and new technologies.

Embedding resource efficiency within Scottish organisations makes a significant contribution to the achievement of the Scottish Government’s strategic economic objectives, climate change, energy efficiency and zero waste targets.

Each year over 34,000 individuals from a range of organisations access the programme for support from the Resource Efficient Scotland Advice and Support Service.

Please note that as of 1 April 2020, the Resource Efficient Scotland resource efficiency service will be changing to an energy efficiency only service, called Energy Efficiency Business Support. Therefore, additional support after this date will be focused on energy efficiency opportunities. However, Zero Waste Scotland continues to offer circular construction support and free opportunities assessments for food and drink waste prevention

Call the service today on 0808 808 2268 to start saving.


Resource Efficient Scotland supports the European Resource Efficiency Knowledge Centre (EREK) as active members of the EREK Network.

The European Resource Efficiency Knowledge Centre (EREK for short) is here to help European companies, especially SMEs, save energy, material and water costs. It provides tools, information and business opportunities that show new and better ways to be resource efficient and benefit from circular economy business models which turn waste into an asset.
