RECP Self-help tools

Congratulations on beginning the journey to a more efficient and sustainable way of doing business. Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) can achieve significant resource savings with surprisingly little investment – and often quick wins can pave the way to even greater savings.  
RECP entails the continuous application of preventive environmental strategies to processes, products and services to increase efficiency and reduce risks to communities and the environment.
The NCPC-SA aims to support businesses through their RECP journey assist South African industry with tools and technical advice. This site provides a number of tutorial videos, and downloadable booklets and posters to assist companies of all sizes. 
We suggest you begin by watching the videos on “Why adopt RECP” and “What is RECP?” and move on to the self-assessment tool to see where your company could possibly make use of RECP.
