Unlock savings with free onsite support for small- and medium-sized enterprises.
Resource Efficient Scotland offers free onsite support through our team of implementation advisors and technical specialists which will help you to identifying your business’s cost saving opportunities.
How long does a resource efficiency audit take?
It typically lasts between two and three hours, allowing our advisor to conduct an in depth, structured review of your key operational areas and processes, at your chosen site.
Why ask for one?
The audit is designed to highlight your business’s best cost saving opportunities – from no-cost and low-cost quick wins, to long-term improvement projects.
What happens after an audit?
On completion of an audit, you will receive a report detailing the key actions you can take to unlock your identified energy, water and raw material cost savings. The report will also contain clear signposts to further advice, support and funding that will help you implement those cost saving actions effectively.
If your business is just beginning its resource efficiency journey, the free resource efficiency audit is an ideal opportunity to understand your opportunities, prioritise your projects, and kick-start your cost savings.
If you’ve already made initial improvements, the audit is designed to help you identify further opportunities and plan your next steps.

“I have recently installed a Biomass Boiler and received accreditation. The Resource Efficient Scotland report was a useful part of this process by giving validation at the planning stage and providing re-assurance during the funding stage. Thanks to Emma and the team for helping.” Peter Phillips, East Muirdykes Farm.
