EREP Toolkit

Module 5 of 5: Resource management tools and where you can get further help
INTRODUCTION This spreadsheet contains links to information sources that can inform the EREP process. It contains four separate pages, selectable by clicking on the titles below or with the tabs at the bottom of this page. The four pages contain information as follows (use the zoom tool to view them more closely): Sector specific (click here to go to sector specific information): Contains links to sources of information about industry sectors, including examples of best practice and general tips for resource efficiency improvements. Resource specific (click here to go to resource specific information): Contains links to sources of information about best practice and tips for improvement relating to specific resources (energy, water, waste, materials). Organisations general (click here to go to information about other organisations): Lists web addresses for a range of organisations (Government departments, Industry bodies, Research organisations, etc) that contain relevant information about aspects of resource efficiency. Some of these links provide potential sources of funding for resource efficiency projects. Tools (LCA, etc) (click here to go to LCA and other tools): Contains links to sources of information about tools that can be used in the EREP process, including Life Cycle Assessment.

HOW TO USE THIS SPREADSHEET Each page contains a brief description of each entry and several columns of information that can be used to search or sort the relevance of entries. These columns include: - the resources for which the information is of relevance; - the "output category" (ie. type of information source - technical report, fact sheet, etc) - up to three additional key words; - a priority rating indicating the relevance (1 = high, 2 = medium) of the entry
