What our clients say

We tasked Resource Futures with revising and writing a new waste strategy for Herefordshire Council.

They quickly understood our requirements, engaging a range of stakeholders to agree strategic principles, enabling us to set ambitious new strategic goals and transforming our service for the future.

It’s a strategy we’ve now successfully adopted, and we are delighted to be implementing.

Herefordshire Council

Resource Futures supported us from ideation through to finished product. The project required deep understanding of commercial and environmental datasets, environmental law and best practice.

The final product allows our customers to interrogate data, analyse and forecast results, and extract insights specific to their business needs. Delivering value and actionable insight for years to come.

Ecosurety

Resource Futures compiled insights into local reuse organisations and potential ways of working together to achieve more through reuse. Their report identified and highlighted factors experienced by existing groups which will help us shape initiatives that overcome barriers and explore opportunities.

It is an important piece of research that helps us improve reuse and repair across Somerset

Somerset Waste Partnership

Working with Resource Futures has unlocked the power of The 2 Minute Foundation’s BEACH CLEAN app data.

We are now able to quantify findings and present powerful evidence to engage stakeholders. The individuals, groups and families taking part are contributing valuable information through citizen science that can be used for better decision making and direct efforts to keep our beaches free from litter.

Nicola Green

The 2 Minute Foundation

Resource Futures produced a thorough report, reflecting considerable stakeholder engagement, data collection and analysis.

The effort that has gone into this information gathering has been exceptional given the timing of this project over the pandemic.

The outputs are invaluable and will be used to inform actions which will make a real difference to our marine industries and environment.
