For its prosperity, creation of competitive product every business company operating in the market needs investment of ecologically safe, methods, means and tools accepted by the world, and the primer for ‘’RECP for SMEs’’ will assist for this objective. Primer on ”Resource efficiency and cleaner production ” has been elaborated within the framework of cooperation on “Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production Demonstration” project of UNIDO and REC Caucasus Armenia National Office, based on methodology targeting green economy promotion in the business sector. The Primer creates large opportunities for the implementation of ‘’better, cheaper, quicker’’ strategic objective within the business sector targeted by any company operating in a competitive marketplace. RECP applies proven preventive environmental approaches for improved resource productivity (reduced manufacturing costs and materials, use of energy and water), reduced environmental impact (less waste, emissions and pollution) and improved occupational and public health and safety.

By mainstreaming RECP into business and production cycle it will become possible to support and achieve

  • reduction of production and technology costs

We are hopeful that Primer will be become a practical tool for small and medium enterprises to improve enterprise performance by production of cleaner and more competitive products, as well as through efficient management of resources.
