Cost and environmental savings highlighted by WRAP project case studies

2 October 2014

Ten new case studies highlighting potential cost and environmental savings made by Facilities Management (FM) clients (those tasked with the management of services that relate to the functioning of a building such as security, maintenance and cleaning) through greater procurement efficiencies have been published by the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) project.

About 70 individual procurements were supported by WRAP with an estimated lifetime contract value of £5.3 billion. The savings over the lifetime of the contracts will be in the region of £39 million, preventing 125 kilo tonnes of waste, and saving 13.5 million kWh of energy and 15,000 m3 of water.

The case studies feature organisations from the public and private sectors, including Oxfam International, Sunderland City Council (UK), Senator International Ltd, and more. The case studies cover a range of areas, such as furniture, catering, uniforms and laundry, ICT services, waste management and textiles.
