Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland

Resource efficiency: sources of funding

Reducing your environmental impacts

Customers, whether businesses or the public, are increasingly environmentally conscious. They demand that they do business, or interact, with others who use natural resources sustainably.

Demonstrating your organisation’s commitment to efficiency can help you attract and retain customers and employees. You can also create interest from funding bodies, stakeholders and the media by showing that your organisation’s environmental performance is well managed.
