Low Carbon: Green way for firms to cut down on bills
FIRMS in Cheshire have the chance to save large sums of money and lower their carbon footprint.
Under a government-funded scheme, support is available to help firms cut their costs by becoming more resource efficient.
Reducing your carbon footprint - the amount of pollution you cause - has already paid off for West Cheshire College in the Port when, back in March, its' motor vehicle students took delivery of a new energy-efficient Smart car.
However, under this new scheme, even more local organisations and firms can save the planet - and save the pennies too!
The £1m scheme is being managed by environmental trust Groundwork Cheshire.
Certain businesses qualify for the free help and, once accepted on to the scheme, a specialist from Groundwork visits them to look at ways to help it become more resource efficient such as:
Waste management costs
Raw materials costs
The consultancy help is funded as part of the ENWORKS programme, managed by Groundwork and supported by the European Union and the North West Development Agency.
Greville Kelly from Groundwork Cheshire said: "The large savings we have been able to identify for businesses so far are a great example of how it pays for companies to 'go green' and think about energy efficiency.
"I hope these savings highlight the advantages of thinking green and serve to encourage other businesses across Cheshire to act on lowering their business costs and carbon emissions."
