New Funds for Green Business Project


A grant of 25,000 has been awarded to Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT) to extend the services its Business and Environment Management Scheme offers to small and medium sized companies. The need for this expansion has been brought about following overwhelming interest from more than 100 firms since the scheme was launched in June 1999.

The BOC Foundation grant will allow PECT to deliver an extensive programme of training workshops throughout the region and promote sound environmental practice to small businesses via a newsletter and a series of case studies.

Richard Donoyou, managing director of PECT said; "Many small businesses don't realise that environmental management offers a significant business opportunity. We are thrilled that this grant will allow us to further demonstrate that taking simple steps to protect the environment can help to save money and increase competitiveness."

The PECT Business and Environment Scheme is unique in the UK, offering a concise environmental management system designed by small businesses for small businesses. Following its initial success in Peterborough, the scheme is now available across Eastern England. Each registration includes an environmental policy and participants have the opportunity to earn an accreditation on completion of a 12-month cycle of environmental improvement.

To coincide with UK Environment Week, businesses are invited to an event on June 5th at the Peterborough Materials Recycling Facility to get a taster of the scheme. Booking is essential, so contact Rachel Pratt at PECT on 01733 760883 as soon as possible.
