The UK's Market Transformation Programme (MTP) effective since 1997 undertakes policy research, development and support projects that aim to bring forward products, systems and services that do less harm to the environment, using less energy, water and other resources over their lifetime. The MTP provides strategic support to a growing set of product policies. These aim to encourage resource efficiency through the development of supply-chain measures such as reliable product information, raising minimum standards and encouraging best practice and where consensus and joined-up thinking is essential to establish priorities and to deliver practical policies. The MTP makes extensive use of public domain, consultative sector review processes to engage industry and other stakeholders at all levels. It also uses scenario-planning techniques and reliable information and analysis to create a managed environment and mechanism for joined-up policy discussions and to establish the scope, priorities and practical pre-requisites for progressive and sustainable improvements to UK resource efficiency.
