Stronger resource efficiency for desirable communities

Stronger resource efficiency for desirable communities

How local innovation in asset stewardship ensures a green and prosperous economy

In these times of austerity it is important that councils maximise sustainable benefits from their assets to ensure ‘value for money’, in all sense of the phrase, for local communities. This is why the concept of ‘resource efficiency’ becomes so critical.

It is local government that provides much of the infrastructure for local business to flourish, and with such an emphasis on economic recovery at present, decisions on allocation of scarce resources has never been more vital. The sustainability of these decisions could be crucial for generations to come.

This APSE report clarifies how everyone can contribute and join together to ensure greater efficiency of resource stewardship in policy and practice, by raising awareness for elected members and corporate management about their clear leadership role in this agenda and showing specific services what they can do in practice.

We call on Government to recognise this vital ensuring role that local government has to play and to reinvigorate national policy to help councils to achieve even more.
