Tools and Guides

We have a range of practical tools and guides that will help you cut costs, reduce waste, and save energy and resources

Scroll down our list, to source what you need to build in resource efficiency to your business :

Resource Efficiency Pledge

This Scottish Government-backed scheme encourages Scottish businesses to save energy, water and raw materials, by showing their commitment to resource efficiency. 

Take the Pledge, and select three actions to tackle in the next 12 months. These range from reducing your electricity usage by five per cent, to promoting the use of public transport, to reducing the litter your business may accrue. 

In return we can give you branded marketing materials to promote your environmental commitment and one-to-one support to help you complete your chosen actions. And we'll award successful completion with a bronze certificate, which can be further upgraded to silver, gold and platinum.

 

Resource efficiency at work

To help you train your staff, we have developed the Resource Efficiency at Work module with a free training video, downloadable presentation, quiz and employee certification.

Staff engagement toolkit

You can dramatically reduce your costs by simply motivating staff to make small changes to their behaviour. Whether that’s using less energy, water and raw materials, or simply reporting leaks and recycling better. 

Run your own switch-off campaign

Save energy, and the environment, at the flick of a switch. It really is that easy, and will save you a surprising amount of money. A switch-off campaign is a simple, effective way to engage your staff, and customers, with the business of saving energy, and highlight how much energy we waste every day through leaving lights burning in empty rooms and items humming on standby. Our free resources, including stickers, posters and light-switch templates, will inform, amuse and inspire action. Go on, switch off that currently unused electrical appliance right now!

Green retail app

Designed with the small retailer in mind, our free green retail app gives you all you need to start saving on your waste, water, and energy bills today. This handy guide includes the basics of eco-friendly retailing to get you kick-started, a host of top tips culled from our experience working with organisations just like yours, legislation information, an introduction to sustainable procurement, and much more!

The app keeps you posted with the latest news, reviews, and upcoming events. Its easy read, attractive format makes this the perfect, portable resource for the small outlet, and it's absolutely free. 

How to set up a green team

For real change, your office needs its own dedicated task force. A green team, in other words. Find out how to recruit the right people, how to make the business as well as the environmental case for change, how to get everyone on board, and deliver real, sustained improvements. They'll develop their careers, while you develop your sustainability.

A green team is a vital, home-grown resource that will boost your brand and turbo-charge your drive for resource-efficiency.
