Smart Green Businesses go for Green 2011-05-11 - No Comments

Small and medium sized businesses in London have started to record financial and environmental savings as a result of their engagement in the Smart Green Business Programme.  Smart Green Business is an initiative for businesses in central London which offers free services to help businesses improve their environmental performance, gain competitive advantage and save money.

There are seven environmental services on offer including developing environmental management systems, recycling and managing resources more efficiently, carbon and energy reduction, travel planning and sustainable procurement. Through professional advice and support, as well as training and the opportunity to gain environmental accreditations, SGB helps businesses to enhance their environmental programmes.

The programme is funded by European Regeneration Funding, matched by a number of public and private sector contributions. It runs until June 2012, by which time it aims to have engaged over 650 businesses, achieved 1300 tonnes of waste diversion from landfill, and savings of over 5 000 m3 of water and 1500 tonnes of CO2. 

Go green business!
