The main purpose of an audit is to identify concerns and problems related to energy and resource use in industry. A resource audit maps the current situation and proposes possible solutions and investments to the client, together with economic calculations. The end result is a clear overview of where, when and what investments should be done.

Grant for the implementation of investments

For the implementation of the activities outlined in the resource audit, it is possible to apply for a grant through the Environmental Investment Centre. The exact conditions of the grant will depend on the open grant round. In addition, a “do no significant harm” assessment of the project is required.

For example:

  • to purchase or replace equipment with more innovative and resource efficient equipment;
  • for the purchase of equipment to make use of own production residues and to reduce the use of primary and increase the use of secondary raw materials in the production process;
  • to introduce a resource-efficient information and communication technology solution.
