UK businesses get greenhouse gas guidelines

UK businesses get greenhouse gas guidelines
Firms in the UK have been given new guidelines to help them improve their environmental practices.

The government has issued the instructions in order to boost energy efficiency, as businesses produce a large proportion of Britain's greenhouse gases.

Both the department of energy and climate change and the department for environment, food and rural affairs were involved in the initiative.

Hilary Benn, the environment secretary, suggested that there are benefits to going green for companies as well as the country as a whole.

He said: "Businesses have an opportunity to lead the way on the UK's climate change agenda and this guidance helps them do that.

"Organisations can save money on energy costs and resource efficiencies - as well as maintaining a competitive edge through strengthening their green credentials."

The guidelines have been based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, which was drawn up by the World Resources Institute/World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
