Angus organisations hail Sustainable Business Week a success

Local businesses have hailed Angus Sustainable Business Week a success following a series of events, that showed firms how they can beat rising energy, water and waste bills - and improve their environmental performance. 


Supported by Angus Council and Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce, local businesses enjoyed a range of free and informative events. They included a CPD certified staff training workshop, knowledge sharing seminar and behind-the-scenes tours of local businesses who opened their doors to share their success and experience.

“The feedback we have received from those that attended the events has been overwhelmingly positive. I’m delighted to hear of comments including ‘fantastic, outstanding, and thought-provoking’. Now we are calling on businesses to take the next steps to reduce their resource use, save money and limit their impact on the environment.”
Marissa Lippiatt, Head of Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Efficient Scotland programme.

“We were pleased to see so many Angus organisations get involved with Sustainable Business Week, whether by attending events and workshops or showcasing and sharing their success with others. Angus Council will continue to work towards the reduction of the carbon footprint of Angus, and assist businesses to harness opportunities for saving energy and reducing costs.  We will be promoting further events later this year as part of a ‘Green Angus’ month. In the meantime, I would encourage any business interested in saving money to contact the Resource Efficient Scotland programme to find out about the free support on offer.”
Councillor Ron Sturrock of Angus Council. 

 

It’s not too late to get involved

Although Angus Sustainable Business Week is now over, the good news is that it’s not too late for businesses to access free Government support and funding to beat rising energy, water and waste costs.
