RECP Assessment

Posted by

SMART Cebu follows an integrated approach to SCP (sustainable consumption and production) promotion by making SMEs aware that going green should not be seen as a cost to the company but as a good investment. Undergoing RECP (resource efficiency and cleaner production) assessment and implementing options derived thereto allows SMEs to generate up to 30% energy savings (e.g. switching to energy efficient lighting, use of available light, or energy conservation and management), reduce the use of production inputs like water, raw materials (e.g. wood), chemicals (e.g. paints, adhesives), and eliminate wastes leading not only to a cleaner and more resource efficient production but importantly to a competitive and profitable business operation.

Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) is the continuous application of an integrated preventive environmental strategy applied to processes, products and services to increase eco-efficiency and reduce risks to humans and the environment.
RECP specifically works to advance:
  • Production Efficiency – through optimization of productive use of natural resources (materials, energy, water) at all stages of the production cycle;
  • Environmental Management – through minimization of the adverse impacts of industrial production systems on nature and the environment;
  • Human development – through minimization of risks to people and communities, and support to their development.
These are the companies that have undergone full RECP assessment:
  1. APY Cane Inc.
  2. Casa Cebuana Incorporada
  3. Clear Export Industries Inc.
  4. Coast Pacific Manufacturing Corporation
  5. Detalia Aurora Inc.
