Company history

Green Gain has built up a reputation for delivering high-quality research, project delivery and direct business support to the private sector as well as public sector clients such as Defra, WRAP, and CO2Sense. From delivery of resource efficiency support programmes to research and practical trials on closed loop recycling and reuse and repair services, we're involved in a wide range of cutting-edge projects. 

At Green Gain, our professional team of researchers has quickly garnered a reputation for providing high-quality research, consultancy and business support. We have successfully secured places on a number of consultancy frameworks for WRAP, Resource Efficient Scotland (RES), the Welsh Government, Barnsley Development Agency and the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Low Carbon Consultancy framework - helping make the transition from a linear to a circular economy. 

In recent years, we have helped organisations improve their environmental performance through a staged approach from baseline measurement and the introduction of resource and energy efficiency improvements through to high-end innovation and the adoption of resource efficient business models.

Examples of recent projects

KFC UK – We assisted them with 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’

FreshPak – We have devised a resource efficiency strategy for the UK’s largest dedicated manufacturer of fresh sandwich fillings and are now overseeing the implementation of a series of recommendations that will lead to significant cost savings in the current waste, water and energy management operations, including ESOS compliance

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 Cymru – We have recently designed a self-diagnostic resource efficiency tool that SMEs can use to identify current operational costs and carbon impact and thus identify any low or no-cost resource efficiency measures
Yorwaste – We are providing strategic business support to assist them in the growth and diversification of their current operations

Leeds Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) - Green Gain is a delivery partner in the provision of the technical audits funded by the Resource Efficiency Fund. This programme is delivered through the Leeds city region LEP

Flexiform – We undertook a carbon footprinting exercise of 6 furniture products to provide the business with a competitive advantage when tendering for large-scale public-sector contracts

Zero Waste Scotland – We have completed business support work for innovative startup businesses that are each respectively seeking to recycle old CRT TV panel glass into a decorative aggregate, create a digital trading platform for the sharing of redundant assets and develop a pilot plant designed to extract high-value chemicals from used coffee grounds

WRAP food waste valorisation – This WRAP funded programme of work, delivered under the Courtauld Commitment 2025, focused on the unavoidable food waste emanating from large corporate food manufacturing plants. Working within the consortium with the Biorenewables Development Centre and Lucid Insight, we mapped waste arising across the bakery, fresh produce and drinks sector businesses. We developed innovative opportunities for extracting compounds from the food waste that could be used in high-value markets, from food to the cosmetics and health industries. We helped to develop the business case for investing in new processes and establishing new supply chains to maximise the value from unavoidable food by-products.
