Part of the Companies Act is about promoting environmental activities to stakeholders and provides a compelling marketing message. Measuring the benefits of recent changes, identifying cost and carbon savings gives meaningful material for great promotional messages. With all business processes, measuring, auditing and ongoing improvement is essential to maintain or grow your market presence which in turn leads to greater sales opportunities and a deeper understanding of the integrity of the organisation.Even if you are not currently required to embrace the CRC, customers will require reports on carbon emissions for their onward reporting. It will soon be critical to show the impact your business is having on the environment, your carbon emissions will be scrutinized and it won't be long before the companies who legally have to report will be smaller enterprises.More information from Peter WognumTel: 01268 758423 Mob: 07710 121101 Email: peter.wognum@groundwork.org.uk Web: www.lowcarbonbusiness.org.uk
