Welcome to SRU. We are a specialist environmental consultancy contributing to a more sustainable world. Our work reduces the impact of material consumption, and leads to improved resource use efficiency and greater resource recovery.
In an environment where material consumption (and the flow of resources to support it) is rising, we work to maximise the use and reuse of those materials and minimise environmental impacts.
A consistent feature of our work is identifying, measuring and describing the available options for reducing the environmental impacts of consumption. These options may range from changes to systems or products, right through to behaviour change by consumers.
Our aim is to always provide real world advice, with achievable outcomes, based on sound information and analysis.
Our areas of interest are:
                     Environmental policy and strategy development for:
                                 lower resource use
                                 greater resource recovery
                                 improved greenhouse gas outcomes
                     Mapping resource flows, with associated data collection and research
                     Environmental impact of policy and investment decisions
                     Advice on issues and strategies relating to all aspects of the resource use hierarchy
                     Product stewardship guidance and advice
We are a team with strong capabilities in our core areas of expertise. We have also developed wide collaborative networks with partners in other disciplines, and often work with these partners to structure multi-disciplinary teams to meet the specific requirements of a project.
