Working with manufacturers and their supply chains to improve performance

Working with Ricardo Energy & Environment gives manufacturers the opportunity to unlock commercial value and reduce risk through the efficient management of environmental operations, resources and materials.

Cost saving is overwhelmingly cited by manufacturers as the main driver behind improving environmental performance. As a result, recycling, reducing business waste and improving energy efficiency are manufacturers’ most common environmental actions. However, there are many other drivers to environmental action such as rising fuel and raw material prices; raw material scarcity; legislation; competitor, stakeholder, customer and market pressures; corporate social responsibility (CSR); and corporate reporting.

To realise the benefits and opportunities and mitigate the risks, a more holistic approach to profitability and sustainability is required.
