The world’s resources are under ever-increasing pressure, leading to environmental, economic and social impacts. At the same time, commodity prices have increased 150% since 2000, creating economic pressures on companies and individuals. Research has shown that there are substantial gains to be made by improving the use of resources by companies, but only a limited number of companies are focusing on this area. By introducing rules to make companies measure and reduce their overall use of resources, environmental and social impacts will be improved, and companies will lower their costs while boosting competitiveness.
