6 Achieved savings

7 North West – CO 2 Savings

8 New opportunity Name:Embedding Resource Efficiency in Key Sectors Duration:October 2009 – December 2012 Value:£9,993,000 Key Metrics:Jobs, Sales, People Trained Key Impacts:Costs Savings (Energy, Water, Materials, Waste diverted from landfill) Scope:Resource Efficiency Environmental Risk Sustainable Procurement …Cluster specific activity

9 Improving Your Resource Efficiency We deliver support in Corporate Responsibility and Resource Efficiency to businesses of all sizes from all sectors. Information services Telephone helpline Seminars and training Legal compliance Networking Risk management Climate change mitigation / adaptation Audits and reviews Opportunity identification On-Site support Opportunity implementation Links to other support Online Resource Efficiency Toolkit

11 The effects of other metrics on activity and impact Target = number of businesses advised Activity = light touch, one off interventions training events, basic site visit no triage Impact = difficult to measure likely to be minimal

12 The effects of other metrics on activity and impact Target = jobs and sales Activity = ‘Corporate Responsibility’ support environmental policy, legal compliance Impact = little or no efficiency savings

13 Eco design of products and packaging On site facilitation / change management On site technical advice Monitoring & measurement Research, options analysis Audit / review of practices Opportunity identification & quantification Sustainable procurement Business continuity / risk Legal compliance Environmental policies Customer demands If Metrics = Saved £, CO 2, materials, water If Metrics = Created Jobs & Sales

14 Market Failure – NW Business Survey Only 26% have heard the term resource efficiency 80% think resource efficiency is important to their business Just 33% have taken action to increase their resource efficiency ~30% turned off lights, changed bulbs, increased recycling ~75% anticipate no return on investment Only 20% plan future improvements in resource efficiency 71% have not looked for support Common perception is that new equipment & capital investment is always necessary… Efficiency is under-rated

15 Data Analysis Challenging perceptions: ~75% of NW businesses think that resource efficiency improvements will deliver no return on investment Analysing the capital cost associated with improvement actions Annual cost savings Achieved = £27m 58% (£13.4m) achieved with no capital cost 72% of opportunities (1844/2576)

16 Types of market failure Common property Public goods Externalities (positive and negative) Imperfect and asymmetric information Increasing returns Market power …Complex issues often require complex solutions.
