Through the analysis of specific businesses and the development of quantified modelling approaches, this study (as part of the UK's 'Green Jobs' Initiative) led by RPA (with support from Cambridge Econometrics) examined the impact that low-cost/no-cost ‘quick-win’ resource efficiency measures have on competitiveness and employment in sectors of the UK economy (specifically the example sectors, Food, Drink & Tobacco and Construction) and how these might affect the UK economy as a whole.
