Increasingly businesses are now expected to have an environmental policy and be able to answer questions about what actions they are taking to safeguard the environment.
In response to this, Connect Reading has launched its easy to use Go4Green guide to reducing your greenhouse gases by taking simple effective steps at a pace that works for your business.
The easy to use Go4Green tool uses a traffic light approach that will help companies move from Red to Green with simple money saving ideas. If your business has not started on this journey Red will be right for you - with suggestions such as buying recycled products and turning off printers and copiers when not in use - that are also easy to implement and, in many cases, can reduce costs. Companies who have already embarked on reducing emissions, waste and energy may want to move straight to Green where the actions are more advanced - such as calculating your carbon footprint and taking steps to reduce it and identifying a board level champion for Climate Change.
By using Go4Green you can start making a positive difference to our local environment.
Let us know you views and keep us up to date with how you are getting on - the success you have, your recommendations and the lessons learnt. We can share your ideas with the Connect Reading network and improve our environment for everyone.
You can download Go4Green at the bottom of this page.
