ABSTRACT
The article focuses on resource management. It cites the British government-funded resource efficiency body Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), which aims to help organizations reduce by 50% the waste going to landfill by 2012. Pam Jose, managing director of North East Recycling, states that resource management may be more difficult for smaller firms since they do not produce enough waste required by recycling organizations. Steve Creed, WRAP director of business growth, asserts that the organization recognizes this concern.
