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 :

Netwaste construction tool

If you are in construction we encourage you to make use of WRAP’s Net Waste Tool. It’s yours to use for free to help generate waste forecasts and prioritise waste reduction and recovery actions for your Site Waste Management Plan.

The tool enables you to apply value engineering at the design stage to;

  • reduce the costs of wastage
  • optimise your strategy for on-site segregation of wastes for minimum cost within a known space constraint;
  • target the top cost-competitive opportunities to adopt more reused materials and higher recycled content in building products
  • evaluate performance against corporate targets, such as a reduction in construction waste to landfill and progress towards waste neutrality or zero Net Waste. 

The Renewables Calculator

The Renewables Calculator has been designed to enable businesses in any sector to carry out a renewable technology feasibility study in order to determine the viability of onsite electricity and/or heat generation.

This tool is under constant development with factors being updated when required and any issues that are identified by users investigated and rectified. If you experience any issues, please email Gordon.Dick@zerowastescotland.org.uk with details which will allow us to investigate.

The installation of renewable technology provides businesses with the security of onsite energy generation, as well as the provision of income via exported energy sales and government subsidies such as the Feed-in Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive.

For more information on these subsidies visit www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes.

Allow us to help you formulate a meaningful environmental policy that communicates the unique nature of your organisation, and your unique contribution to mitigating climate change and meeting your environmental commitments. Don't let your policy be dismal and run-of-the-mill – let it be passionate, articulate, and world-shaking!
