Green Business is Good Business

Forward-thinking businesses are leading the way on environmental management. It's ethically the right thing to do. As well as that, managing environmental impacts saves money and reduces waste.  Did you know...?

navigate - Better control of energy saves small & medium sized companies £1,000 p.a. (Carbon Trust study)
- Waste disposal costs an average business 4.5% of their turnover (Envirowise figures)
- Environmental regulations are constantly evolving- fines can hit six figures
- Environmental charter marks & accreditations can deliver new & secured sales

Good environmental practice is expected of businesses.  Renewable energy is a hot topic.
Green products & services are in demand.  The future is green.  Are you?
