Cleaner Production Projects Development Manual is a methodology that provides guidance for implementing cleaner production projects in companies. The projects aim to reduce manufacturing costs through more efficient use of energy and material resources, lower pollution, and improved health and safety performance. The main objective of the approach is to prevent pollution at its source, focusing on the causes rather than treating the impacts.

The methodology can be used by both companies and business-support organisations assisting them.

The manual demonstrates economically and environmentally sound solutions, showcasing different approaches to, and development of, cleaner production projects.
