Promoting Industrial Energy Efficiency through a Cleaner Production/Environmental Management System Framework

Project Summary

The project objective is to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide by improving energy management practices and identifying investments in SMEs through a structured approach. The approach will be built on and consistent with the Environmental Management System framework embodied in UNEP’s Cleaner Production programme. Project services are to be delivered through selected National Cleaner Production Centres, drawing on their extensive networks in industry and experience in promoting environmental management with a preventive, cost-effective focus.The project will fund activities needed to bring energy management into the package of CP/EMS advisory services currently being offered by NCPCs. Once this is done NCPCs will be able to provide, on a recurring basis, comprehensive environmental management services to industry that include energy efficiency and energy management components. The extensive networks and professional reputations of the NCPCs will allow them to reach industrial clients that will be difficult to reach through other mechanisms.
