Resource Efficiency and Cleaner Production

Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) can be defined as a systematic and integrated approach to managing energy, water, environmental and financial resources, eliminating or minimising waste and emissions to the environment, on a sustainable and cost-effective basis.

RECP methodologies look at enhancing the means to meet human needs while respecting the ecological carrying capacity of the earth by producing more well being with less material consumption.

RECP is measured by the reduction of the resource use and the environmental impact from materials, emissions, and accidental releases per unit of production, trade, and consumption of goods and services over their full life cycles.

The End User course equips trainees with the knowledge, understanding and tools that will enable them to initiate the development and implementation of RECP.
