Green Business Parks Continued

Green Business Parks

The Groundwork Trusts in the Yorkshire and the Humber region have recently embarked on an exciting new project to help businesses in the region improve their profitability and increase their productivity. All this while helping the environment!

This project will seek to regenerate neglected business and industrial parks by securing funding that will enable the residents to participate in improvements to their own environment.

Improving site appearance through thoughtful landscaping, reducing crime by developing site security and improving site access and signage will be the first steps in creating a “Green Business Park”.

Participating business parks will receive information on methods to reduce their running costs. Developing an environmental policy can help businesses identify inefficient practices and offer viable alternatives in order to maximise profits.

Some of the benefits businesses have experienced through other Green Business Park projects throughout the UK include :

  • Access to funding
  • Support for developing site-wide cost reducing strategies
  • Access to training for staff
  • Improved market position
  • Access to up-to-date information on the latest environmental legislation

This project is based on other successful Groundwork initiatives working throughout the UK, such as the Enworks project in the North West. Businesses such as ISM Waste Services and Recycling in Bury have already benefited from the expertise of Groundwork Trusts and made substantial financial savings. Make sure you are doing the best for your business, and for the environment.
