Abstract/Summary In 2002, the Working Group for Cleaner Production undertook the first eco-efficiency project for the Queensland food processing sector, in partnership with the Queensland State Government and industry groups. This initial project aimed to increase awareness by providing sector-specific technical resources and engaging industry through workshops. A follow-up eco-efficiency project for food processors took place in 2007, which continued the awareness process by updating resources and developing eco-efficiency assessment skills in the industry. The follow-up project provided the opportunity to evaluate the implementation of eco-efficiency by this sector over the intervening five years, and examine the changing drivers and barriers to eco-efficiency uptake. This paper reports on this evaluation.
