This European CWA specifies a cross-sectorial methodology for identifying, characterizing and implementing a set of indicators whose purpose it is to enable an organization to improve the resource use efficiency of a process or the impacts associated with the consumption of these resources.
It specifies a methodology applicable to resource use and consumption efficiency, including measurement, performance and optimization, and applies to all industries, but particularly to the resource-intensive process industry.
This European CWA has been designed to be used independently, but it can be aligned or integrated with other standards or management systems.
This European CWA also provides, in Annex A, informative guidance on its use.
