BiC and Yorkshire Bank spread “green” message

KIRKLEES firms are getting a helping hand to cut costs – by improving their “green” credentials.
Business in the Community and the Yorkshire Bank are delivering a seminar on Wednesday, October 6, to show how easy it is to implement environmentally sustainable business practices.
The event, called The Business Case for Cutting Carbon, will look at the top 10 cost-free ways to reduce carbon, cut costs, identify the business benefits of going green and how to get further assistance and free environment benchmarking.
Senior business figures will share experiences of their own environmental upgrades and how there is a correlation between that and a reduction in costs.
Elizabeth Edgington, BiC’s environment campaign manager, said: “It’s important to take every opportunity to cut costs and grow profits. If we can do this by looking to our so-called green credentials, then we should take that opportunity.
“Some companies may have already embarked upon that path. If so, we can help them further. Being receptive to limiting a company’s environmental impact and making it more efficient is a sure fire way of maximising company profits.”
David Gold, a senior partner at Yorkshire Bank, said: “This seminar demonstrates the need to be pragmatic and to really look at every option to cut costs.”
The free seminar will be held at Yorkshire Bank’s West Yorkshire Financial Solutions Centre in Bradford. Contact email@example.com or call 0113 2058226.
