Green Gain is a vibrant young consultancy specialising in the circular economy, innovation and enterprise. We help organisations to respond to changing markets and increasing resource prices through a range of strategic and practical approaches – from resource efficiency savings through to new business models and new enterprises.

We do this through three primary service offerings

Research and development
Environmental auditing

Green Gain staff has some fifty years’ experience of working with organisations on sustainable waste, water and energy efficiency. We are based in the Re:centre, the University of Bradford’s new centre for rethinking business approaches to resources and a fantastic place for networking and collaboration. Green Gain offer a powerful blend of insight, business skills and technical knowledge backed up by access to a wide range of experienced associates and a considerable network of contacts.

We impose a fresh perspective to existing practices, helping bring ideas to life!

We are currently delivering some pioneering projects that will change existing approaches to business and deliver some long-term tangible outputs

KFC UK – we are assisting with the procurement of the new waste contract that will allow KFC to appoint a high-performance recycling contract, enabling them to make the move from ‘waste management’ to ‘resource management’.

Fresh-Pak – we have devised a resource efficiency strategy for the UK’s largest dedicated manufacturer of fresh sandwich fillings and are now over-seeing the implementation of a series of recommendations that will lead to significant cost-savings in the current waste, water and energy management operations.

REBus – we are working with a Scottish-based renewable energy technology developer to offer a lease-hire arrangement for a micro-CHP unit, BlueGEN.

WRAP Hospitality and Food Service Agreement (HaFSA) – we are supporting 8 signatories, including Greggs, McDonalds, Pizza Hut and Roadchef, to enhance their current recycling performance beyond 70% by the end of 2015.

WRAP Cymru – we have recently designed a self-diagnostic resource efficiency tool that SMEs can use to identify current operational costs and carbon impacts and thus identify any low or no cost resource efficiency measures.

Yorwaste – we are providing strategic business support to assist in the growth and diversification of their current operations.
