EMPRESS – Platform for Resource Efficiency and Sustainable Consumption and Production – is a non-governmental organization established as an association of leading SCP experts in 2008 under the project Partnership for Sustainable Production and Services. This project focused on development of a methodology for diagnosing opportunities for eco-efficient innovation of SCP in enterprises. The methodology was successfully piloted in a number of organizations, and EMPRESS was founded as a platform for further dissemination of these practices.

The goal of EMPRESS is to promote resource efficiency and sustainable consumption and production with a focus on manufacturing companies and service providers but also public organizations.

EMPRESS is a contact point for RE/SCP and provides a platform for information transfer and for creation and exchange of know-how. This know-how relates not only to the practical application of SCP principles in companies but also to policy inputs supporting eco-efficient solutions as an alternative to regulation.

EMPRESS is a founding member of the Czech national platform for circular economy, and member of Czech Business Council for Sustainable Development. At international level, EMPRESS is a member of PREPARE network, RECPnet and EEA/Eionet.
