Resource Efficiency Clubs (RECs) will enable businesses to work with each other in their area to reduce their resource consumption and waste production, as well as increase their energy efficiency, overall environmental performance and sustainability. This will help your business save money whilst working to protect the environment.


REC’s will help you and your business network with other businesses that have or are currently going through the process of improving their environmental practices. The Clubs will provide opportunities for SMEs to engage in a range of activities, such as:

  • Workshops
  • Networking
  • Best practice exchange
  • Expert lectures
  • Local Projects
  • Online forums
  • Joint Procurement

Experience of organisations working in this area suggests that businesses can benefit from a group mechanism in addition to their individual support and advice sessions when undertaking performance improvements. Resource Efficiency Clubs will build on this experience, with BIDs leading recruitment and delivery.


If you are ensuring that your business is following best practice in environmental performance or want to share knowledge and information with other organisations like you, REC’s will allow you to take your environmental credentials to the next level.

REC’ will be promoted at BID level.
