Eco-Region North West

The Eco-Region NW project set a new standard for analysis of waste and material flows at the regional scale. It provides a 'joined up' information system which measures environmental performance at both the regional level and the firm level.

The Eco-Region NW was part of the national Ecological Budget UK project supported by the Biffaward national research programme of waste / resource flow analysis. Its main aim was to develop an interactive benchmarking system for waste minimization and resource productivity. This system helps to make the links between different levels - the region, industrial sectors, firms, households and key products
