RECP Indicators

RECP progress at an enterprise is monitored using a set of Resource Productivity and Pollution Intensity indicators as follows:

Resource productivity

  • Energy productivity (product output per unit of energy used);
  • Materials productivity (product output per unit of material used);
  • Water productivity (product output per unit of water used).

 

Pollution intensity

  • Carbon intensity (greenhouse gas emissions per unit of product output);
  • Waste intensity (waste generation per unit of product output);
  • Waste-water intensity (waste-water generation per unit of product output).

 

Jointly, these six relative indicators constitute enterprise-level RECP profile.

Increases in any of the three productivity ratios and decreases in any of the three intensity ratios over time are beneficial from the environmental and sustainability viewpoints and substantiate the successful implementation of RECP practices and technologies.
