Resource efficiency has become a topic of greater importance due to dramatic increase of world-population and globalization. A company that is not able to efficiently utilize its resources is less sustainable and competitive. This paper introduces an assessment approach as a tracking and analyzing system to facilitate improvement of resource efficiency particularly for SMEs. The approach supports common economic KPIs of producing companies using resource-based measures. Two main elements are used. One for tracking resource efficiency measures (REC) and one for analyzing efficiency losses (REF). A tool has been designed to support the application and interpretation of the system elements.
