Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
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.
Support for resource efficiency in businesses and charities is available from the following sources. Interest free loans are available for qualifying organisations. There is guidance and support for measures to reduce energy use, water use and to minimise waste.
The Northern Ireland Environment Agency has published a short guide to the duty of care responsibilities including advice and information for waste producers, carriers and those accepting, storing and treating waste.
Any person intending to alter the use or management of areas of uncultivated or semi-natural land must obtain prior approval from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).
