Energy Consumption & Resources

Consumption and Resources is concerned with the choices we all make as consumers and what we do with our waste post consumption. This document is in development – we’re signposting good practice and link directly to websites to enable further exploration.

In a fast-evolving situation, these represent a limited snapshot in time. We aim to revisit the site on a regular basis to update; data as it becomes available, changes in government policy, describe new initiatives and link to further case studies.

The Consumption and Resources Practical Information document is organised to facilitate quick access to the introduction and information regarding the nine areas covered:


Food and Drink

Clothing and Textiles

Electrical / Electronic Goods

Household Goods


Paper and Card

Domestic Water

Mineral Resources

Commercial Resources and Waste
