Environmental policies are common sense

Environmental policies are common sense
Companies can save both emissions and money by investing in environmental initiatives, experts have claimed.

According to Business Link, there are economical reasons for firms to embrace ideas such as carbon emissions reduction schemes.

The UK government advice service suggested that there has been a change in attitude towards green projects in recent years.

Paul Elliott, support adviser for Business Link, said: "At a practical level for existing and start-up businesses it is common sense to adopt green policies because in a lot of cases they help cut back on waste and allow you to make better use of resources and utilities.

"If we think back a few years people thought of going green as being much more of an imposition in terms of regulations and costs to the business, but really you could substitute the term green initiatives with resource efficient initiatives."

New research from NetRegs.gov.uk has found that 84 per cent of small firms now recycle waste, highlighting the readiness of companies to adopt green measures.
