Assessing the efficacy of deploying shared resource efficiency managers
EandSP talks to WISE Network
EandSP is an SME based in south Wales delivering sustainability services to businesses. They approached WISE Network for assistance in developing a research and development project aiming to assess the efficacy of deploying shared resource efficiency managers in the SME manufacturing sector.
The assistance was successfully delivered and has provided the company with a robust research protocol and a framework for evaluating the success of their R&D activity.
The company was subsequently successful in winning £271,000 of funding from Defra to pilot the concept. The pilot project is now running, due to complete in 2016. This project will see EandSP working with a number of SMEs who are part of the Rolls Royce plc supply chain or a geographical cluster of members of the EEF (the Manufacturers’ Organisation).
“We have greatly benefited from our engagement with the WISE Network programme and look forward to making further progress in both reducing the impact of our operations and extending our offer to those who are hard-to-reach.”
