Energy Efficiency and Process Improvement

Making processes more efficient, less polluting and consume less resources is good business as it saves money while reducing waste and harm to the environment. There are a number of well-established approaches for improving processes to enhance the economic, environmental and social triple bottom line. These include:

  • Energy Efficiency;
  • Cleaner production; and
  • Eco-efficiency;

CCR's experienced team has worked with a number of leading Australian and International companies to improve their processes and increase their energy efficiency.

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency is well recognized as one of the most cost effective way to improve overall energy performance of the company. With rising energy cost, businesses need to improve their energy efficiency and reduce energy costs to increase productivity and competitiveness. It can be achieved through a planned approach by identifying the energy saving opportunities, evaluating and finally implementing in a cost effective manner. A systematic 'whole of business' approach needs to be adopted to achieve significant improvement in the overall energy efficiency.

CCR offers a full range of technical and business advice for organisations to enable them to conduct their energy assessments and successfully achieve the company's specific energy efficiency objectives, including:-

  • developing a strategy and policy documentation;
  • energy management plan;
  • communication plan;
  • implementation of energy management plan, energy data collection, analysis and monitoring;
  • detailed investigation of 'whole of business' energy management approach;
  • facilitating energy efficiency opportunities workshops to identify possible energy saving opportunities and business case analysis of identified opportunities;
  • implementation, monitoring and reporting of energy efficiency related projects; and
  • training and capacity building.

CCR also provide services for companies to develop procedures and documentation to achieve certification under the ISO 50001 – Energy Management Systems Standard, including independent assessment services to ensure companies are compliant to the relevant energy management certification.

Through its experienced team of professionals CCR has been providing energy efficiency services for more than 15 years to assist companies to realise operational energy cost savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. We provide strategic and practical advice to corporations across a range of industry sectors.

Cleaner Production

Cleaner Production means applying an integrated, preventive environmental strategy to processes, products and services in order to increase efficiency and reduce risks to humans and the environment. Cleaner production saves money for companies while reducing wastes and harm to the environment. The goal of cleaner production is to successfully deal with the causes of environmental problems at their source as opposed to pollution control and waste minimization, which merely treat the symptoms.

CCR uses leading edge cleaner production assessment approaches and tools to assist businesses from a range of industries to make their processes cleaner and more efficient.

Eco-efficiency

As defined by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), "eco-efficiency is achieved by the delivery of competitively priced goods and services that satisfy human needs and bring quality of life, while progressively reducing ecological impacts and resource intensity throughout the life-cycle to a level at least in line with the Earth's estimated carrying capacity." In short, it is concerned with creating more value with less impact.

CCR uses leading edge eco-efficiency approaches and tools to assist businesses from a range of industries to make their processes cleaner and more eco-efficient. These include:

  • Cleaner production;
  • Eco-design;
  • Industrial ecology; and
  • Lifecycle assessment;
