The national Resource Efficiency Pledge scheme is growing with East Renfrewshire Council becoming the latest organisation to take part.
The Resource Efficiency Pledge is led by Resource Efficient Scotland, a programme of Zero Waste Scotland, and works with businesses to help them reduce their running costs and carbon emissions.
By making the pledge, businesses can demonstrate their environmental responsibility, choosing a number of actions that will help save money and reduce their use of energy, water and raw materials.
East Renfrewshire Council will be an official Ambassador of the Resource Efficiency Pledge.
As an Ambassador, the council will work with businesses to promote the scheme and support them to make savings. In the doing so the council has committed to:
· Begin a council-wide Green Campaign – ‘Think Green’
· Engage staff with resource efficiency at work and at home, supported by the Green Campaign activity.
Adam Florence, Project Officer for Energy Efficiency and Carbon Reduction at East Renfrewshire Council said:
We acknowledge our responsibility to balance social, economic and environmental objectives, and to ensure the wellbeing and sustainability of future generations.
“We also set out our approach to conserving and enhancing the natural environment, securing a sustainable future for East Renfrewshire and our drive to modernise the way we work by taking advantage of digital technology.
“By becoming an ambassador and developing our ‘Think Green’ campaign, we can help council employees and local people get involved with sustainability, to promote our green activities, to support the development of green work-practices across council services, and to inform people and SMEs on how to be greener.”
Marissa Lippiatt, Head of the Resource Efficient Scotland programme said:
“I’m delighted that East Renfrewshire Council is becoming an ambassador for the Resource Efficiency Pledge and supporting us to reach businesses across East Renfrewshire. The pledge helps businesses to save significant sums of money on their running costs, cut their carbon footprint and show off their green credentials all in one easy step.”
Businesses, trade bodies and organisations with industry influence can apply to become Ambassadors of the Resource Efficiency Pledge. Learn more about the initiative and becoming an Ambassador at resourcepledge.com
