Resource efficiency

As a society, we are over-using our planet’s resources. If everyone lived as we do in Scotland, we would need three planets to sustain ourselves. In the 21st century and beyond, only those businesses that operate in harmony with our one planet will thrive.

Everyday SEPA works to protect and enhance Scotland's environment, helping communities and businesses prosper within the ecological capacities of our planet. We call this One Planet Prosperity.  

One Planet Prosperity is changing the way we do things and is designed to help businesses harness the socio-economic benefits of environmentally positive action.

We have developed a Resource efficiency checklist to help you understand how you can incorporate resource efficiency into your business, home or project. By working your way through the relevant parts of the checklist, you will have a better understanding of the range of resource efficiency measures and resources available to reduce your resource footprint.

We hope that all applicants to the SLCF will be able to incorporate some resource efficient elements to their projects.

Once you have completed the Resource efficiency checklist you can save a copy and include it with your funding application to any Approved Body.
