News: APSRG calls for more funding for remanufacturing
All-Party Parliamentary Sustainable Resource Group (APSRG) report, Resource Efficiency across Supply Chains, examines how supply chains can become more resource-efficient and cut waste.
Monday, 15th February 2016
The All-Party Parliamentary Sustainable Resource Group (APSRG) has published a report: Resource Efficiency across Supply Chains that brought together industry experts and 10 case studies to examine how each stage of the supply chain could become more resource-efficient and cut waste. The APSRG makes 12 recommendations, most notably calling for the government to compile evidence on the current state of play of resource efficiency in UK companies. This would help determine the barriers that prevent companies from being resource efficient.
The report is a collection of expert essays that cover each stage of the supply chain, sponsored by WRc, GJF Fabrications and SUEZ. It explores how resources can be better used to make supply chains more efficient and how waste can be cut along supply chains.
Green procurement is one of 12 recommendations made by the APSRG report, which details how each stage of the UK supply chain can become more resource-efficient and cut waste. Other recommendations include more funding for remanufacturing research, trade bodies reviewing the inbound and outbound flows of materials and goods within their sectors and Government issuing a call for evidence on the state of play of resource efficiency in UK companies.
